Low Carb Cauliflower Bacon Quinoa Salad

Cauliflower Bacon Quinoa SaladQuinoa is one of 10-12 ancient grains and has become something of a child darling in the last 5-7 years and probably because it is gluten-free. The problem for low carbers is still its high carb content. This Cauliflower Bacon Quinoa Salad is a very quickly made recipe to accompany a last minute meal. If you like this you will also like my Cauliflower Tabbouleh which is different, a bit more complicated, and uses more ingredients. Will this taste like a classic quinoa? No, but pretty close.
