Redpack was also kind enough to send me some of their petite diced tomatoes to try out along with some wonderful recipes including this delicious Southwest Quinoa Salad that my family and I loved!

I adapted this recipe slightly for my daughter which meant eliminating avocado and cilantro and replacing the barbecue sauce with salsa.  This turned out delicious and my daughter had about four helpings for dinner.   A family friendly and easy meal is a winner in my book!

This salad would be perfect to take to a dinner party as well, it’s delicious and a no-fuss meal to make ahead of time.  Also, you can make this vegan by eliminating the meat. 

Redpack was also nice enough to offer a giveaway of the same tote and some cans of their tasty petite diced tomatoes that they sent me to one of my readers so you can “toss in the flavor” to your summer salad!  

Enter below and don’t forget to head over to the RedPack Facebook page to enter to win their grand prize as well. This giveaway is open to US Residents, 18+ and one entry per household, per address.
