This is an extremely simple recipe.

And honestly you guys, I just love quinoa in my salad. But what really takes the cake for this recipe is yes, you guessed it.. the salad dressing. Make sure to check out my Sauce Queen eBook for more amazing vegan dressing recipes.

1 tbsp nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2-3 tbsp water
