One food that always reminds me of fall is cranberries. Maybe it is their gorgeous red colour. Or maybe it is because of the amazing cranberry sauce my mom makes every Thanksgiving. Either way, every fall when the weather starts to cool, I really crave them. This quinoa salad has double cranberries: a cranberry vinaigrette and dried cranberries!
The base of this salad, quinoa, is a whole grain that is both low FODMAP and gluten-free.
Chopped walnuts and cucumber give the salad a nice crunch, and the green onions adda boost of flavour without adding any FODMAPs.
This cranberry walnut quinoa salad is simple, nutritious and perfect for fall. It would also be a great low FODMAP dish to bring to a holiday potluck!
