I notice that when a couple spend a lot of time together, their taste for food would come to mergence. I say this because I notice my drastic change in food preference throughout the years. This goes for my boyfriend as well. I still remember those early days of our relationship, we were both quite deterred from the taste of coriander (but not cumin) and tofu. And now, it seems like we can't get enough of it. Whenever we stay in for dinner, he would suggest Asian meals over Italian. So that's how this quinoa salad came to light. Notice that I am still using a lot of accessible ingredients because I want to be sure that I can get them when I'm in Italy/New York.
This is a fairly easy recipe and only require a few extra steps. I guess that's the great thing about cooking, a few mere tweaks can surely elevate a dish's taste. One other change I noticed is that I am adding a lot of citrus taste to my food these days. Maybe one day I will snap a photo to show you what's in my fridge and you'll see that lemons and limes are definitely my must-have items. Hey, those little sour bombs are awesome. I can't get enough of them. I consume at least 2-3 each day. Maybe that's also why I noticed them getting more expensive lately... Hmmm..
