Quinola shares two of their favourite plant-based salads. 

Quinola care deeply about giving farmers a fair price and a better future. They source their product from the Cabana co-operative in Peru. Quinola also supports workers further down the production line. Their products are packed in Le Havre in France by people with learning difficulties. If you haven't guessed, the photo above is of the beautiful quinoa plant!

Quinoa is an incredibly nutritious grain containing all nine essential amino acids. NASA feeds quinoa to their astronauts on long space missions! Check out these two delicious quinoa salad recipes.
