Today I made a super healthy salad with Quinoa. I really love the nuttiness of this grain and paired with vegetable and lemon...its out of this world.
1/2 cup of Quinoa ( wash in a small strainer)
1 cup water
Let this come to a boil and slow down the heat to simmer. Cover the lid and cook till all the water had evaporated and the grain has a white ring around it. Fluff it up and set aside.
Cucumber - diced
Baby tomatoes - cut in half
Bell pepper - diced
Onion - diced
Garlic - chopped
Parsley - chopped
Feta cheese - crumbled
The dressing I used a pear and cranberry balsamic vinegar and squeezed half a lemon but you can actually use any kind of dressing preferred.
Let the flavors develop for at least 2 hours.
