Quinoa Bean Salad

This is the quinoa bean salad.  Picture props go out to my wonderful and talented sister-in-law Esther Battisti.  She is participating on this journey with me and is a SUPER talented photographer.  She’s an awesome mom as well to two beautiful daughters 🙂 By the way,  I had a lot of fun making this. It was super yummy too!  It tastes almost like pasta salad.  Enjoy!
