Quinoa salad is probably the simplest food on the planet. Even the beginners can make quinoa salad. It’s pretty inexpensive, especially when you buy it in bulk. You can cook quinoa in bulk when you don’t have time to cook everyday.
Thanks to Holly Rigsby I came across this wonderful quinoa salad recipe.
So here it is:
Mango Lime Quinoa Salad
• 1 cup quinoa, uncooked
• 1/4 tsp salt
• 1 ripe mango, peeled and chopped
• 1/4 cup almonds, chopped
• 2 Tblsp pumpkin seeds
• 1 medium cucumber, peeled and diced
• 2- 3 Tblsp olive oil
• juice of 1 lime or to taste
• 2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander
• Salt and pepper to taste
Cook quinoa. Peel the mango and cut into cubes. Peel and slice the cucumber thinly. Add cucumber to mango along with the almonds and pumpkin seeds. Mix lime juice, olive oil, fresh coriander, salt and pepper. Add the mango and cucumber to quinoa, pour the dressing over the salad, toss and enjoy!
