A super refreshing and delicious salad, loaded with vibrant vegetables and a creamy peanut sauce, giving the salad a variety of contrasting textures. Best part? It's packed with health benefits right from the super food quinoa which has twice the amount of fibers compared to other grains and is rich in iron and manganese; to peanut butter which has nutrients that aids a healthier heart and improves blood sugar levels. Of course, when had in its limits!
