Summer Quinoa Salad (Recipe Monday)

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

Here is an all original Quinoa recipe.  I love quinoa because it's a light dish that packs a lot of protein and can be made in so many different ways.  This recipe is super easy and yummy.

1c. Quinoa
2c. Water
1/2 Cucumber, peeled, chopped
2 Plum Tomatoes, chopped
1 Avocado, chopped
1/3 c. Dried Cranberries
1 Lime
1 tsp. Olive Oil
pinch of salt


  1. Rinse quinoa (if needed) some kinds come pre-washed.                        
  2. Bring water and quinoa to boil, reduce to simmer and cover for 10-15 min until water is absorbed.
  3. Mix cooked quinoa, cucumbers, tomatoes, avocado and dried cranberries with juice of 1 lime, olive oil and salt.
  4. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour until cold and serve!
