Warm Quinoa Salad

Here's an easy quinoa dish for you today that's perfect for the summer bounty of veggies. What I really love about it is it can be catered to whatever's in your fridge and whatever your tastes might be. I linked to the inspiration below and if you follow it you'll notice that I changed it up quite a bit. The blog it's featured on made the quinoa salad as a cool/room temp dish but I thought a warm quinoa salad would deliver a more comforting bite.

Inspiration from this market quinoa salad

Here's what I did
   While 1 cup quinoa cooked in 2 cups chicken stock
   Prepare balsamic vinaigrette: whisk together 2 tbsp evoo, 1 minced garlic clove, 1 1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar, 1/2 tsp dijon, salt and pepper, juice of a lemon
   Saute 1 diced onion, 1 diced red pepper, and 1 zucchini. Add cherry tomatoes near the end.
To cooked quinoa add a handful or two of spinach and balsamic vinaigrette then follow with diced mozzarella and sauteed veggies.
