Quinoa + Tuna Salad

This has quickly become a favorite of mine (probably because it has garlic in it….one of my absolutely favorite things to add to food)! I have to admit, even I wasn’t so sure about quinoa in the beginning, but I think if you are on the fence about it right now your mind will be totally changed after this. Trust me.

This recipe is paleo, gluten-free and absolutely delicious. Packed with nutrients and vitamins, this is a super food meal!
