Roasted Veggie Quinoa Salad

A simple and satisfying side dish to enjoy during Passover or anytime.

I’m gluten-free so quinoa is part of my everyday life, but I think most gluten eaters appreciate quinoa the most on Passover, when more mainstream grains like wheat, barley and rice are off-limits. This quinoa salad is very versatile in that you can use pretty much whatever vegetables you like depending what is in season. Here I do a roasted veggie medley of sweet potatoes, onions, zucchini and bell peppers, but asparagus, tomato and scallion would be just as delicious.
