Peanut Ginger Quinoa Salad

I tried to come up with a snappy name for this post, but this salad has so many ingredients that it was difficult to decide which deserved to be front and centre.  Since the dressing is made with peanut butter and ginger, these flavours are in every bite.  And quinoa, well, I can’t hide the fact that we have been eating quite a bit of this grain, as you can see from previous posts.
