I made this the night before, and had it the next day for lunch. Only took a little container of it, and I wish I had taken most of it. It was that good.

How To Make my quinoa salad

  • 1
    cook quinoa per pkg instructions in a covered pot .......or if the pkg doesnt have directions ........use 1 cup quinoa to 2 cups water (or stock)in a covered pot. when it starts to boil, turn to simmer for approx. 15 min or til water is absorbed (like rice). fluff with fork and let cool. Other than the 1/2 cup for this recipe , cover and refrigerate. Will last for a few days in the fridge.

    Mix the 1/2 cup quinoa and other ingredients well. Can be used right away, but better when flavours have a chance to meld. Cover and refrigerate.
  • 3
    Can be used as a side dish on its own, or as a dip with nachos or crackers. Or you can even add it to a lettuce salad.
