I absolutely love salads and try to incorporate them in everyday meals.
The most amazing and prettiest Watermelon Cucumber and Quinoa Salad! Made with 5 simple ingredients like Watermelon, crisp cucumber, shaved  onion, feta and fluffy quinoa with a mint and basil vinaigrette for a delicious Summer in a bowl meal.
