Mango Quinoa Salad

Click image to enlarge

This is a favorite summer dish in our house and quite possibly an all-over favorite. It’s easy to make, but it’s a complex dish that combines different textures (crunchy vegetables, soft mango, grainy quinoa, crunchy peanuts) and tastes (savory, sweet, spicy, refreshing yogurt and mint). For people with more conservative tastes, I promise: It doesn’t taste as weird or unusual as it sounds. Get the recipe at epicurious.com.
