Quinoa Goat Cheese Salad with Nuts and Rocket
This dish is perfect for vegetarians as a main meal, or a side salad paired with pan fried fish, or slow cooked lamb.
What I love about this dish is it’s rich flavour and it is so simple to prepare. This is a perfect meal to enjoy in autumn by the fire place with a glass or Pino Noir.
