I had two weeks worth of green beans to use so I decided to make a cold salad with some of them. I’ve been meaning to find a good Quinoa recipe too and this seemed like the perfect time. I turned to Gojee.com which sent me to this recipe and it turned out great. It’s a surprisingly elegant salad with lots of refreshing flavor and it’s easy to make.

This looks lovely. Our green beans will start coming soon, then I’ll make something like this. They are so delicious and sweet when home grown.
