This scrumptious salad is so sumptuous that you can have it as a quick meal or a filling snack! It is marked by an off-beat combination of ingredients, which is sure to pick everybody’s curiosity and earn their praise.

Quinoa, brown rice and a selection of vibrant veggies are dressed in a tongue-tickling dressing that combines balsamic vinegar with sesame seeds and other ingredients.

The dressing gives the salad a tangy and pungent taste, not to forget a strong aroma that can be attributed to the sesame. Make sure you serve the Quinoa, Brown Rice and Vegetable Salad with Balsamic Dressing immediately after tossing, to enjoy the crisp freshness and bubbly taste.
