Gluten-Free Corn-Quinoa Salad

Today I made this quinoa salad. It was delicious. It was a little hard to make because you need a blender and two saucepans along with a strainer and you need to prepare lots of the ingredients first. The taste is very good because the dressing has Dijon mustard which gives it a strong sweet flavor. The cherry or grape tomatoes then lessen the flavor a little bit which makes it not have an intense flavor. Then the corn, cucumber and cabbage help to give it more taste. I found this recipe in QFC's free Optimum Wellness magazine for July/August 2011.Overall this is a great side dish for a barbeque or sitting outside for a summer dinner, and the best part is this is very healthy because of the quinoa and all the vegetables.
