Quinoa Salad

This hearty salad can be served as a meal on it ‘s own. I paired my bowl with a fresh hunk of Fred’s Bread. I was full and happy with my healthy and colourful meal.

Rinse and cook quinoa – about 2 cups cooked (this will allow for lunch leftovers)

Chop:

  • Roasted red peppers (I just threw my red peppers in the oven while I chopped the rest and they were ready when I was)
  • 1/3 red onion
  • Carrots – I used 3 baby carrots
  • 1 Avocado

Add the veg to the cooked quinoa and also add

  • 1/2 chick peas
  • handful of dried cranberries or raisins (you could used chopped apple instead. I like to include something sweet)

Dressing – a quick pour of each

  • Olive Oil
  • Balsamic
  • Lemon juice (or apple cider vinegar)
  • if you like a little sweetness, you could add a touch of maple syrup

Toss, sprinkle with pepper and feta cheese and serve.
