Recently a blog reader reached out to me with a request for more salad recipes. I eat salad, promise I do! I think it’s just that salad recipes can feel like less of a challenge, so I skip over posting these for something more groundbreaking…like Real Healthy Snickers Bars or 20 Minute Teriyaki Chicken or Stuffed Meatballs.
My apologies to all you salad lovers. I hereby promise to make a more concentrated effort to post more nutritious, fiber+FLAVOR-filled salads for your herbivorous enjoyment 🙂
- Combine all of the ingredients on a plate. Enjoy!
Not sure how to cook the quinoa? It’s simple…
2) Second, place the quinoa in a pot with 2 cups of water or chicken broth. I find that using chicken broth really gives a nice dimension to the flavor. Place over medium-high heat.
3) Third, bring the mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally.
4) Fourth, reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove the lid and fluff the quinoa with a fork. The liquid should be gone and the quinoa should be light and fluffy. Voila! That’s it!
