Vegan Thai peanut butter and quinoa summer salad to satisfy even the most sophisticated taste buds

The weekend is over. As I had some leftover food in my kitchen and fridge I wanted to use it up. The first option was to cook some warming soup from it. But I have chosen to make a fresh and crunchy salad instead 🙂 As usual, it is a very simple and fast one. You need only 15 minutes to cook the quinoa and prepare the rest of the ingredients.
