quinoa salad

Serve on a bed of lettuce and sprouts for the perfect crunch.

I first tasted quinoa salad at a local market. I thought it was delicious until I read the ingredients, which included preservatives and other additives.

However, I liked it so much that I created a recipe, which my family liked even better than the store-bought salad.

The recipe contains eight raw vegetables plus healthy quinoa. I have not tried it, but I believe rice as the grain would also work.

If you like cucumbers, they could also be included. You do not have to be a vegetarian to enjoy this dish.

Except for the time it takes to cut up the vegetables, it is a very easy dish to prepare. Also you can save time by using a food processor.

Be certain to wash the quinoa well before cooking it. I believe the ratio is 1 cup of quinoa to 2 cups water. It does not take too long to cook, so as soon as all water is absorbed, remove it from the stove.
