Raw Quinoa Zucchini Squash Salad

This is a delightful flavorful salad that is loaded with protein and zesty hints of lemon juice and herbs. It’s a great dish to have for a starter or for a light meal. Try this refreshing raw quinoa zucchini squash salad with your favorite dressings or toppings. I like to top mine with fresh basil and drizzle extra virgin olive oil over the top!
