Simple Tomato Cucumber Salad

While wandering through one of our local farmer’s markets the other day, I was impressed by the sea of fruits and vegetables that came in all colors of the rainbow.

As if it needs more accolades, quinoa is light and easy to digest and can be used as a substitute in place of rice in any dish.
