Quinoa Salad

A spin on the standard Quinoa.

Quinoa was first domesticated by Andean peoples around 3,000 to 4,000 years ago.It has been an important staple in the Andean cultures, where the plant is indigenous, but relatively obscure to the rest of the world.The Incas, who held the crop to be sacred,referred to it as chisoya mama or "mother of all grains", and it was the Inca emperor who would traditionally sow the first seeds of the season using "golden implements".Native Mapuches in south-central Chile cultivated quinoa, but there is uncertainty as to whether this variety originated in Central Chile or in the Central Andes of Peru and Bolivia.
