Quinoa SaladPosted by in Food
I’ve been trying to incorporate quinoa into our diet more frequently since it is packed with nutrients. My latest dish was a quinoa salad. This is a recipe you can play with. Use whatever you have on hand or what you’re in the mood for (ideas include cucumber, carrots, green beans, etc.). My herb garden is currently suffering a setback (it was trampled by some workers we had here), otherwise I would use fresh herbs: dill, cilantro, parsley, oregano, mint, or basil would all be fantastic in this little salad.
- 1½ cups cooked quinoa
- ½ cup frozen corn, or fresh corn cut off the cob
- 1 green onion, sliced
- 2 tomatoes, diced
- 2 avocados, diced
- ¼ cup olive oil
- 3 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- ½ teaspoon dried Italian herbs
- salt and pepper to taste
- ½ teaspoon sugar
- Mix quinoa and vegetables in a bowl. Mix oil, lemon juice, mustard, herbs, salt, pepper, and sugar and pour over the salad, tossing to coat.
