Quinoa Salad Bowl with Orange-Tahini Dressing

Quinoa Salad Bowl with Orange Tahini Dressing

This dish was inspired by a very delicious meal at the Sentient Bean Cafe in Savannah, Georgia, which we visited while on vacation. Full of savory quinoa, vegetables and dressed with a sweet and tangy tahini sauce.  This bowl does not disappoint.  Enjoy!
