My favorite Quinoa salad!! YUM..
When I make a quinoa salad I love to add as much fresh veggies as I can, but my favorite recipe is the following.
I cook my organic GM free quinoa for 15 minutes, then I let it cool down and I start mixing the veggies. While I cook my quinoa, I flash stir fry some garlic (to taste), peas and some julienne carrots with some celery, I slice a mix of sweet onion and spring onions (1 1/2 cup). Once everything is cooked, I add some fresh tomatoes, either cherry tomatoes or bigger ones sliced, then I add some avocado and make my dressing.
2TB olive oil
2TB balsamic vinegar
1TB Dijon Mustard
Mix it all together and then add fresh herbs: parsley and basil to taste... enjoy!!!
