This healthy salad is quick, easy, and perfect on a spring/summer day, which means it’s juuuuust right for ANY day in CR!
1.5 cups of cooked and cooled quinoa
1/2 bell pepper, diced
1/2 c. cherry tomatoes, diced
1/2 c. cucumber peeled and diced
1 stalk of green onion, chopped
small bunch of cilantro, chopped
1 small can of corn (or use raw ear of corn)
1/2 c. cooked beans or chickpeas, chilled (you can use a small can if you have one on hand)
(of course, you could dress this a bazillion ways, but I’ll share what I used today)
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
1 clove of garlic, minced
Add your prepared veggies, beans, and herbs to your cooled quinoa. Mix dressing ingredients in a small bowl, add to your salad and toss. Chill in the fridge for about an hour before serving, if you can wait that long! I suppose this could feed 2 or 3 people, but I ate it all myself. ;)
