Best Quinoa Salad Recipe

Quinoa is a versatile food, similar to rice, but with enough 9 essential amino acids to make a complete protein. It’s easy to prepare and super tasty. The salad recipe below makes an excellent meal, a tasty side dish, or a light snack. For more recipes check out my other cooking vids at QUINOA SALAD: ingredients: 1 cup quinoa 3 medium tomatoes (chopped) ¼ cup red onion (finely chopped) 3-5 garlic cloves (minced) ½ inch ginger (minced) 1 cucumber (chopped) 1/3 yellow pepper (chopped) 1 carrot (thinly sliced) ¼ cup parsley or cilantro (chopped) 3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar 2-3 Tbsp olive oil 2 Tbsp lemon juice Salt (to taste) Directions: Add 1 cup quinoa to 2 cups water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer 10-15 minutes (I find it usually takes about 15 minutes). Place cooked quinoa in bowl and let cool—doesn’t have to cool completely—by the time you get your other ingredients prepped, the quinoa will be cool enough. Add vinegar, olive oil, salt, and stir well. Add onion, ginger, and garlic. I usually chop the onion fine and MINCE the garlic and ginger VERY WELL. The raw garlic and ginger adds lots of flavor and nutrition. Give the bowl a good stir and get these ingredients mixed thoroughly. Add yellow pepper (red pepper is fine, but yellow makes a nice color contrast), cucumber, carrot. Sometimes I also add green onions—or even diced jalapenos if I’m looking for a little kick—feel free to experiment with any vegetables you enjoy in a raw state
