Quinoa Salad

Simmer til quinoa has absorbed all liquid.

Chop:

Toss chopped items in cooled quinoa. Add a handful of grape tomatoes and black olives.

Dressing:

2 tbsp fresh dill chopped

Blend and pour over salad, toss gently and enjoy.

*I added some chopped red pepper, some green onion too. MMMMMM!!!

I will try this. I tried a Quinoa salad once not too long ago - it was ok and had some guests who didn't like it that much. Maybe this one will be better.
