Ingredients

    1 cups dried quinoa cooked in 4 cups water to package directions
    1 bag shelled edamame frozen
    1 package reduced sugar cranberries
    1 chopped red bell pepper
    1 chopped green bell pepper
    2 chopped carrots (large)
    Balsamic to taste (about 4 tbls)
    Favorite low salt seasoning (used about 4 tsp Ms Dash) to taste

Tips

Try Incan/Aztec red quinoa if you can get it for a dark red salad. This was my third time using Quinoa and I admit I was scared my first time. It is very similar to couscous or other whole-grain. It is almost as quick as Couscous to deal with and way healthier!


Directions

Cook quinoa to package direction. Place in large bowl. Add cranberries and edamame. Dice veggies and add. Drizzle in Balsamic to taste. Add favorite low sodium seasoning like Ms Dash. Toss well to evenly distribute.

Portion out. Will keep 7 days and be delicious every day.

Serving Size: Divide into 10 servings (about 9.1 grams each)
