It always brings a huge smile to my face when I receive emails or comments from folks who have tried one of my recipes and enjoyed the end results. We food bloggers put a lot of ourselves out there for the world to read, and aside from the personal and financial struggles I share with all of you, the majority of the recipes I share are my own creations. And while I may like what I make for myself (I'd better... I'm the one who has to eat it, hahaha), getting positive reader feedback on the recipes I do end up sharing is beyond gratifying.
My Red Quinoa & Broccoli Salad with Almond Honey Vinaigrette is one example of a dish that is both a personal favorite and a reader favorite. Some Facebook fans have even been gracious enough to dub this "the best salad ever" and while some may argue there are better salads out there, I have to agree that this one is pretty darned awesome. Red quinoa is tossed together with crunchy broccoli florets, stir-fried tofu and crisp red onions, then drizzled with a generous amount of one of my favorite dressing creations: an almond butter & honey vinaigrette. It's packed with protein & fiber, rich in nutrients, and heavy on flavor & textures, making this one of my favorite salads to enjoy any time of the year.
At under $2 per serving, it's quite easy on the wallet. And now that the photo has been upgraded, it's easier on the eyes, too. For the full recipe post, follow this link or the one up above. Hope you all enjoy it as much as the rest of us do!
