Gorgeous and Delicious Quinoa Salad

It’s been almost a month since my last post… unbelievable!

I am working part-time for an attorney now, but still find time to hold talks on healing disease with food.  I just returned from an over due trip to India, where I spent 2 incredible weeks!  So life has been quite busy and inundated with Grace.

I want to share a very yummy concoction with you. Since quinoa is mentioned in every other article on healthy grains.. and recipes abound.. I thought a simple and flexible one might be a welcome addition to your repertoire.

Let me also say that if you’re brave, you can get creative with your choice of left over cooked veggies, beans and/or herbs in this recipe.

Recipe

  • 2 c. red organic Quinoa, cooked
  • 1/4 c. Red organic Onion, chopped
  • 2 med. organic cooked, diced Carrots
  • 1 Avocado, diced
  • 1/4 c. organic Corn off the cob, steamed or grilled
  • 1/4 c. organic Green Beans, steamed or grilled
  • 1/4 c. diced cooked organic Zucchini
  • 1/2 Red Bell Pepper, diced
  • 2 Tbs. Almond Cheese, diced (opt.)
  • Organic Parsley, chopped (opt.)

Dressing:

  • Use your favorite dressing or the one below:
  • 2 Tbs. Lemon juice
  • 2 Tbs. organic Apple Cider vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp. Cumin
  • 1/8 tsp. Black Pepper
  • Drizzle of organic virgin Olive Oil

and

  • Sea Salt to taste

Mix all and enjoy at room temperature or chilled.

~ Bon Apetit!
