Dijon Maple Quinoa Salad

This is the perfect plant strong salad that can be added to anything on the menu as a scoop, eaten on its own or made more into a meal with the addition of falafel, of course. We recommend the sweet potato! It’s protein-rich with quinoa and garbanzo beans and detoxifying with lemon, maple and mint leaving you with a sense of the spa life.
