Summer Quinoa Salad - fresh lemony dressing and naturally gluten-free.  Put together within minutes!

School is already back in session next week.  I feel like I was just posting about how soon school was letting out for the summer!  Figured I should hop in here and share this summer salad we’ve been eating before the season is officially over.  (Although, I don’t see that happening anytime soon here in the good ol’ south.)

You will love this salad and even more how exceptionally easy it is to throw together!  I mean, look at the directions below.  It’s basically two sentences.

Do your kids start back this early to school?  August 4th is the official day here.  How many things do I need to pack in before then?
