I use this salad dressing on quinoa and salad greens. It is absolutely delicious!!!

This recipe is for 1 cup of cooked quinoa. Use organic/non gmo ingredients when possible 🙂

Tossed with tomatoes, feta, fresh basil and cilantro.

Some interesting information on the health benefits of cilantro. I have also read that cilantro is very good for clearing out and detoxing metals out of our body.

Duke, Ph.D., a former botanist at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and author of The CRC Handbook of Medicinal Herbs, has praised the digestive-system-promoting benefits of cilantro and recommends drinking a cup of the tea made from a handful of the leaves, when experiencing any form of stomach discomfort.
