gluten free quinoa fruit salad recipe
Hey! How has your summer been?
It has been a good one for me. I went to Toronto with my daughter, traveled to Fargo to hear my son speak at TEDxYouth and with that the whole family spent time together, spent a long weekend in Aspen learning how to fly fish and just got back from a road trip to Seattle and Vancouver.

Two of my adventures were long road trips and I am working on writing a gluten free travel blog centering on what I packed in my cooler and how I decided where to eat while on the road. I hope this information will help you feel more comfortable traveling.
Today I am sharing a quinoa dried fruit salad. I have made this salad quite a few times this summer, especially when we were hosting a barbecue.
It always went over really well.
This is a salad that you can make on Sunday and it will last 4-5 days. You can also easily add a leftover protein to this salad and it would travel well for lunches.
