Red Quinoa Salad with Oranges
- Total Time
A tangle of tempting textures and flavors best describes this unusual salad. Whole-grain gluten-free quinoa is the perfect foil for the slightly bitter radishes, juicy navel oranges, and salty feta. If you've not had radish tops, this is your chance—you'll love them!
