Quinoa Salad...light and lovely!
1 C quinoa cooked 15 minuets in 2 C water or broth (I used vegetable broth)
Cook and cool quinoa in refrigerator.
Chop these veggies(I didn't really measure these...just eyeball or use more of what you like most):
1/2 C English
cucumber (the long skinny ones although you could probably use regular)
1/2 small red onion, diced
2-3 green onions, sliced
2-3 T chopped cilantro (or use basil if you hate cilantro)
1 t chopped jalapeno (I used the jalapeno paste in a tube from Safeway...add a little more if you like it zippy)
Stir these into the cooled quinoa and dress with:
3 T olive oil
1 T fresh lemon juice (I used a whole lemon...a little tangier...or try using a lime)
This serves 4...
