Weezie's Quinoa Salad

Submitted by: WEEZIETEE

Introduction

This is my easy peasy Girls Night salad - no fuss, no muss and it works when you've got people who are watching calories, eating raw or gluten-free. This is my easy peasy Girls Night salad - no fuss, no muss and it works when you've got people who are watching calories, eating raw or gluten-free.

Ingredients

    I'm guessing at ingredient amounts as I threw this salad together on the fly with no recipe. What I've entered is pretty close, though. It makes a giant salad bowl full... and I'm estimating it garners around 10 pretty big servings.

    Simply cook the quinoa (1 part quinoa to 2 parts water) in your rice cooker.

    Chop veggies to your liking

    Toss together with lemon juice, olive oil & cracked black pepper to taste.

  • This reminds me of a recipe I have for "great grain salad" - it's kind of a choose-your-own-adventure approach to salad making. I like it! - 8/22/10

  • I've been wanting to try quinoa for awhile, so today was the day. I whipped up a batch of Weezie's Quinoa early this morning, brought some to work for lunch, and IT IS WONDERFUL! So fresh tasting! So different! This one's a keeper. I did add some lightly sauteed sliced mushrooms to mine, and yum! - 5/28/09
