Quinoa Salad

When I was doing my internship at the Paracelus Klinik in Switzerland, I tacked on a couple days and visited the South of France.  I went to this restaurant on the beach of the Mediterranean Sea in Nice, which was not only a beautiful setting but the food was amazing.  I ordered this salad, it was so simple but so delicious.  I tried to recreate it when I got home.  It’s not the exact same, but I’d say it’s a close second.
