Rainbow Quinoa Collard WrapsAnyone recognize this recipe from last year on my Instagram? Well, I stumbled upon it on my computer, and I decided that I should share it with you all because I know you would enjoy it.Rainbow Quinoa Collard WrapsYou can choose whatever you would like to fill up these wraps, because the dressing/dipping sauce is the star of this recipe. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll probably realize that this is a dressing I am absolutely obsessed with since I’ve shared variations of it many times before. But really, I still want to keep sharing it because it’s THAT GOOD.

This dressing is high carb, low fat, and raw, plus it can be made in minutes! It freezes well, too 🙂

Out of persimmons? NO PROBLEM! Grab a mango, it will work perfectly in its place.
