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

Step-by-Step

  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.
  2. 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.
