Notes

The idea was simple enough: leftover quinoa with golden raisins, some spinach, cucumbers, and a dash of olive oil.

I used leftover quinoa, warmed up slightly in the microwave. I would suggest making the quinoa ahead of time and cooling, or the spinach will wilt. Unless you like wilted spinach, then by all means make this a warm salad instead. Substitute any salad ingredients you like, utilizing whatever is on hand
