Quinoa Salad   

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

sea salt

black pepper


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. ;)
