Bask in the goodness of the ‘wonder grain’ with this fantastic Quinoa, Corn and Capsicum Salad. The unique texture of cooked quinoa is a perfect match for succulent sweet corn and crunchy capsicum.

The dressing adds lemony, herby and spicy accents to the salad, making it a holistic treat for the taste buds. Make sure you cool the cooked quinoa completely before tossing the salad, so that the grains separate and do not clump together.

Serve as a side dish with a Main Course or with a bowl of one of your favorite Soups and Crispy Bread .

Quinoa, Corn and capsicum Salad..The dressing is little sweet, little spice with a super Crunch.. tangy and zesty flavour..the combination of vegetables goes very well with quinoa.. with a grainy feel in every spoon.. Really love to have this salad.. whenever i am hungry.
