I’ve published more than a few quinoa salads over the years, but this one stands out. A Crunchy Clean eating Sun-dried Tomato with Almonds and Quinoa is made with red quinoa.

I used red quinoa in this sun-dried tomato and quinoa almond salad, but you can use any color quinoa. You may or may not know that quinoa comes in three main varieties: red, black and white. You may be more familiar with the regular (white) quinoa, but no matter what color you choose, you will be getting a load of nutritional benefits. Quinoa is high in protein and fiber, the two vitamins I look for in my daily diet. Yogurt is high in protein and benefits your heart health, and sun-dried tomatoes have loads of vitamins C and K.
