Quinoa & Swiss Chard Power Salad

I love developing new salads to keep lunch and dinner interesting. Along with creating a great-tasting salad, it's important to create one that's also nutritious and filling. This dish provides an abundance of protein, calcium, vitamin A, vitamin K, and vitamin C. It is also rich in fiber and contains a plethora of antioxidants. Dare I call this a power salad?
