Southwestern Salad with Grilled Sausages

Cooking time:  20 minutes for menu          Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

Southwestern Salad with Grilled Sausages

Total time: 20 minutes
     The quinoa, corn, beans and peppers give this salad a 'southwestern' flavor.  The oregano, Greek olives and feta a Mediterranean flavor. An eclectic Salad!  It's equally good with turkey, chicken or sausages!
