Mediterranean Style Quinoa Salad

I have been desperately trying to eat better, I have been on a semi diet for about four weeks now. I say semi, because I’ve totally indulged in rhubarb crumble, ice cream cones, strawberry truffles…you get the point. I started eating a porridge that contained quinoa, I read up on the benefits of eating it and they are pretty spectacular to be honest. Twice as much fibre as other grains, extremely protein rich. But let’s face it, although it has a semi nutty taste, it’s pretty boring. A bit like cous cous and brown rice, you need to pack it with flavour. So this salad was born, the dressing is based around what I used for my bruschetta. I’ve also gone a bit wonky and added raw sweet potato in it, but you know all those truffles!
