Quinoa Salad Recipe

Quinoa.  They label this a 'superfood' so I'm here to check out what all this fuss in the media is about.

Type 'Quinoa' into google and your search results should display words like 'health packed', 'nutritional benefits', 'great substitute', and 'easy to cook' (I like the sound of this last one), etc and etc.

In all honesty, the words 'superfood', 'health' and 'nutritutional' generally put my tastebuds to sleep. But given these days I am trying to change my lifestyle a bit and substitute some unhealthy eating habits with better ones (particularly during the work week), I decided to give the famed quinoa a little try.

Pronounced 'Keen-wa', these little grain-like seeds are apparently jammed packed with goodness like protein, essential minerals and antioxidants.*  Some have even claimed it as an 'anti-aging miracle' which can 'delay the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles' (now you've really sold me there!).**
