Southwest Quinoa Salad at The Kitchen

They serve fresh, clean food made from scratch and all of their salads (as many as eight on the menu!) fit the bill. Our personal favorite is the Southwest Quinoa Salad.

You can customize any of their salads by adding chicken, salmon, shrimp, beef filet, bacon, avocado or hardboiled egg.
