Random Sundays: Quinoa Salad


I love a simple healthy delicious meal and that's why I like this quinoa salad.  You just make a whole bunch and keep it in the fridge for when you're feeling peckish.  And it's so simple!

Cook quinoa: 2 parts water for every 1 part quinoa - bring to boil and simmer covered until water is gone.
 Let cool.
Then chop up a whole bunch of fresh parsley *I like to grab a huge couple of fistuls* , lots of cucumber *about half- 3/4 of a large one*, one tomatoe and one red pepper.  Mix it all in with the quinoa.  Then I pour in a crap load of good quality olive oil *tons and tons until it's well saturated but not soupy* and the juice of a lemon *or two depending on how tangy you like it*.  Yum!

I don't follow a recipe so much as put in as much as I want of each thing depending on what I want that day - more cucumber, more red pepper, etc, etc.

  1. That looks absolutely delicious! I am not a big fan of " healthy" food but one time I tried this salad at my cousin's dinner party and I love it. Very rare that something so healthy could be actually delicious.

    Enjoy the rest of the long weekend!
