The dressing for this salad rocks! Slightly spicy and sweet, it's delicious with the blend of vegetables typically used in Asian-style salads. I add quinoa. On it's own quinoa is pretty flavorless making it the perfect compliment to most dishes. Quinoa is nutrient-dense. It's packed with protein and fiber and is loaded with magnesium, iron and anti-oxidants. It's readily available in grocery stores and is super easy to prepare (it's as easy as rice). Adding chopped peanuts gives this dish another layer of texture and some more peanutty crunch.
