Quinoa, as we all know, is a superfood that's loaded with protein, fiber and good-for-your-body nutrients. By cooking the quinoa in a broth rather than water, it easily adds a ton of flavor without overpowering the dish.
When I make salads, I love putting together as many flavors as possible. Along with the crispy bacon, I added in some sugar snap peas, juicy tomatoes, peppers and raw corn, which is really good in this dish. This dish was a hit and is ready in no time. You can even make the bacon and quinoa ahead of time to keep your time in the kitchen minimal.
