Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

I often ask the manacle (get it? Bah-de-haaa!) what he thinks and feels about specific recipes I make. What a loaded question, right? I typically ask this question when I’ve had too much wine and am having difficulty scrounging around for words to spitter spackle together a blog post.

And this is no exception.

On this occasion, the question went, “Garrett, what do you think and feel about that Mediterranean quinoa salad I made a while back.” The answer went, “Uhhh…it made me feel like I was in the Mediterranean…uhhhh….floating on a yellow raft.”

    This looks so good and your husband makes me laugh! He’s trying to help, right? My hubby usually just tells me that it tasted healthy, which of course is no help at all.

      He definitely has his heart in the right place. Classic mistake, though, trying to coax an in-depth food review out of a man…one of these days, I’ll remember boys just don’t react the same way to food as we women do 😉

    Husbands are funny when it comes to food conversations. I ask mine about things I’ve made when I want to laugh. But when I want brutal honesty, I ask my kids. This salad looks gorgeous and yummy and like something that needs to get in my tummy. Soon!

    This looks yummy! Can’t wait to make it for supper tonight.

    Someone may have already asked this question, but perusing the comments’ section, I didn’t see it. Since I grew my own spinach, I need to know how much spinach by weight or volume? Or, at least, what size bag of spinach, since our grocer has 9 oz bags and one pound bags.

    Thanks! 🙂

      Hi Beverly! So glad you like the quinoa salad. I used about 5 ounces of spinach for the recipe. Have a great weekend and let me know if you have any other questions 🙂

    Adding also that the recipe is not showing up. I used to have this saved on my Evernote but when viewed from there your Share buttons are over top the recipe and the recipe is overtop the comments. So I went directly to you page again and theres the initial write up and pictures but no recipes. Also, no matter how many times I X them out, the pop-up advertisments every minute make your site almost impossible to view. Where I would expect the recipe to be is all advertisments also. Unfortunate.
