Gluten Free Rice, Lentil and Quinoa Salad

gluten free dairy free rice lentil quinoa salad recipe
I like salads!
In fact I could eat salads almost every meal, well, not for breakfast normally but definitely for lunch and supper. (I even have my 27 favorite salads available in my cookbook.)
I really like salads that will last in the refrigerator for a couple of days too and how I normally do that is by putting them in canning jars.
You can fill them to the right portion size that you want, put the lid on and grab and go.
Basically just give the jar a bit of a shake and it is a good as when you made it.
This is one of those salads.
This salad would be great for a bbq or picnic in the summer too.
No mayo or dairy ingredients that you have to worry about in the summer heat.
Barbecue up some chicken breasts or steaks and all you really need is this salad to go with it.
