Like any good Peruvian, I grew up enjoying quinoa, so I'm very happy that now I can find it anywhere I go in California. I always try to add this nutritious ingredient to my families diet. For example, this quinoa salad with tomatoes, cucumbers and feta cheese is one that I like to prepare for my sons summer camp lunchbox. It's very easy to prepare and is simply delicious.
