Fall Quinoa Salad

FODMAP salad recipe - fall quinoa salad

It’s no secret that I love quinoa and find it an extremely versatile side dish but if you aren’t as big of a fan as I am, you can always substitute for another grain like rice or couscous.  Did you know just how much goodness is in this small grain of quinoa?!  Not only is this naturally gluten free but it is also high in protein, fiber, magnesium, B-vitamins, and iron, to name a few!  This dish is perfect when looking for a FODMAP salad recipe to feed a large group as it doesn’t need to be served hot and can be made ahead of time (just make sure to not add the dressing until you are ready to serve).  I love making this during the holidays as a healthified side dish option!
