Quinoa Pineapple Cherry Salad

A plate of quinoa pineapple cherry salad

I had been thinking about this pineapple salad for quite some time now. Not That I don't have anything to do, but just because I have been craving pineapple. This quinoa pineapple cherry salad is so satisfying, you won't need anything else after.  I don't know about you, but I don't like standing in the kitchen when it's summer weather out. This recipe calls for just four ingredients and a few minutes.
