Quinoa Salad

2 Aug

This recipe is absolutely FABULOUS!  It is kind of like a “beefed up” (with quinoa) salsa/guacamole dip, but you could eat it just as a salad or with tortilla chips.  It’s really yummy and I’m actually making it again for dinner we loved it so much!

Ingredients:

1 cup dry quinoa

1 can black beans

cherry tomatoes, quartered (as many as you want)

1/2 red bell pepper thinly sliced (I cut mine into small squares)

1 avocado cubed

1/3 cup cilantro

the juice of 1 lemon

olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

chicken/vegetable stock

Directions:

Cook the quinoa as directed in the chicken stock (2 cups for 1 cup quinoa).  Put the beans, tomatoes, pepper, avocado, cilantro and lemon juice in a bowl.  Add the quinoa.  Mix and add olive oil and salt and pepper until desired taste.  Enjoy warm or cold.  Yum, yum, yum!  This is SO simple and so yummy 🙂  You really do have to make it–now!
