Quinoa Salad Tuscany Version

Hello everyone. One of my favorite tuscan summery dish is “Panzanella”… but since I changed my lifestyle, I like to eat healthier, so I prefer to replace country-style white bread with quinoa and add more vegetables. I hope you like this light and fresh summery salad as I do. Thanks for reading. Have a wonderful weekend.

Ciao a tutti. Uno dei miei piatti toscani preferiti in estate Γ¨ la panzanella… Ma da quando ho cambiato stile di vita, mi piace sostituire il pane toscano con la quinoa e aggiungere altre verdure. Spero che questa insalata leggera, fresca e estiva vi piaccia come piace a me. Grazie della lettura. Vi auguro un meraviglioso fine settimana.
