A deliciously healthy combination of cooked quinoa and fresh fruit and vegetables. This salad is easy to put together and packed with flavour and texture.

For the salad
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 2 large mangoes, diced

For the dressing
  • juice of 3 limes

  2. In a small bowl add all of the dressing ingredients and stir to mix well.
