Quinoa salad – say no to Thanksgiving food coma

Uff, have I indulged this weekend! Pre-thanksgiving dinner with new friends on Saturday and I have been feeling stuffed since! Time to take it slow with some light food now. This salad is both fresh and seasonal/local with the pomegranate that is everywhere in Istanbul, yet it has taken inspiration from all the yummy veggie dishes in Israel last week.
