4 Cups Cooked Quinoa (SimplyNature)
1 medium diced Red Onion
1 Cup Chopped Parsley
1 Medium Cucumber, peeled and chopped
Mix 3-4 Tbsp of Red wine vinegar & 3-4 Tbsp of olive oil with garlic powder, salt & pepper to taste. Pour dressing over salad mix. Serve chilled.
1. Rinse your quinoa before you cook it (if you measure then rinse it is much easier)
2. If you are not usuing a seedless Cucumber core the seeds out
3. Flat verses curly parsley - flat usually has more flavor and Curley is typically used for decoration. Always wash both well if you are purchasing from a super market but either are fine. My choice - curly.
4. Enjoy as a side dish or add it to a "nourish bowl"!
