Grilled Peach Quinoa Salad with Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette
A Summertime Salad idea that’s packed with interesting flavor combinations! Those juicy warm peaches, combined with the spicy jalapenos drizzled in sweet balsamic dressing…
WOW! I could truly eat this all Season and be VERY happy about it!
If you’re looking for a satisfying, meatless meal to serve during the warmer months – THIS is it!
I also think this Salad would also be pretty great with grilled chicken or shrimp!
