I find that the month of September is every year a beautiful month because it is often beautiful…maybe to torture us, all of us are back from vacation, or to tell us that the new term it is not that hard, because making his comeback under the sun, we goes back a little morale ! Anyway, here is a small quinoa salad perfect for the beach (yeah, whatever, I think my picnics on the beach for the next week !), or for a lunch box balanced, which will prevent us to crack on this chocolate éclair from the bakery on the corner !!!

Ah yes I’d forgotten ! Rinse your quinoa before cooking to remove the saponin, yes, because prior to discovering this thanks to Mary, I didn’t like quinoa because I thought it a bitter taste (not was’ was’ the girl !) !
