Quinoa Salad ON THE GO

Posted Jun 15 2010 6:53pm


Get inspired by your local restaurants and save some money.  This was my idea recently when I popped into a particular new hummus restaurant by my office in Murray Hill.  On the menu was a dish called "Quinoa Salad." I thought, I can make this...don't spend $8.99 on the one dish. So, instead, I bought the ingredients for about $10 and had lunch for a week.  A delicious (and healthy) lunch that is :)

Quinoa Salad

1 Cup cooked quinoa
Chopped red onion
Chopped red pepper
Cranberries
Raisins
Chopped Walnuts

** Use about 1/2 to 3/4 of the red onion and the entire red pepper.  Use as many cranberries, raisins and walnuts as you please.  

Eat your quinoa salad however you wish.  I ate it on a bed of mixed greens and experimented with honey mustard dressing (still looking for a tasty dressing to go with -- might be good with a raspberry vinegrette). The salad is delicious on its own but would also make a really nice side dish for say, a light fish. ENJOY!
