We love the versatility of Quinoa. It makes a great base for side dishes as well as salads. This salad is a refreshing alternative to heavier pasta salads and is completely open to tweaks. Add grape tomatoes, broccoli florets or shredded carrots. A topping of pine nuts and feta would be wonderful here. The possibilities are endless. Rosemary Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Peach White Balsamic combine to give a light, sweet, summery flavor.

Cook quinoa according to package directions. Spread out on a sheet pan to cool. In a large bowl, combine the Rosemary Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Peach White Balsamic. Add all of the vegetables and toss to combine. Add the quinoa a few large spoonfuls at a time, stirring to incorporate the dressing and vegetables. .
