Quinoa Salad

A much asked for recipe I wanted to share with you.  This was a huge hit at the bbq we attended over the weekend.  So much so that they kept it all & requested that we bring the recipe to the next baseball game.  Of course I completely winged it.  Aren't those the best recipes?  Here is how I did it - let me know what you think! 

"Its so refreshing"


Quinoa Salad 

2 cups uncooked Quinoa                               1 cup water
1 cucumber                                                    ½ purple onion
6 mini sweet peppers                                     2 navel oranges
1 tomato {diced & seeded}                            1 canned corn
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil                 ½ lemon {zest & juice}

 1} Combine Quinoa & water in large sauce pan. Cover & Bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium for 15 minutes. Stirring occasionally to avoid sticking to pan.

2} Combine oil , drained canned corn , zest of ½ a lemon & squeezed lemon juice in sauté pan. Cook over medium until browned a little.

3} In a 10x13 dish combine corn & quinoa . Put in fridge to cool.

4} While quinoa & corn are cooling – prep the vegetables. Dice cucumber, onion, mini peppers & tomato. Peel & chop navel oranges.

5} Combine all ingredients into large serving bowl. Serve cold.
