Quinoa Caprese Salad

There's just something about Basil, Mozzarella and Tomato that are to die for, but it's hardly enough to consider a meal. While I don't tend to have specific pregnancy cravings, if I want something, I want it. And this week I wanted Caprese Salad for lunch. 

So, in efforts to make it a bit more sustainable, I added a little bit of this and a little bit of that... and now I'm hooked! 

This super easy recipe is mindless and nearly effortless and luckily the whole family will fall in love with it!
