Healthy Quinoa Salad Recipe for Summer

By | July 13, 2016

During the summer time it’s easy to forget about our diets. Cook outs, beach days, and just being out and about so much makes it easy to grab unhealthy on-the-go food. Here is one of my favorite healthy recipes for the summer. It’s quick and easy to make, and you probably have most of the ingredients in the kitchen already! Healthy quinoa salad is the perfect summer treat as a main dish or a side!

Prepare 1 cup quinoa (1 cup quinoa and 2 cups water, bring to boil and simmer until Quinoa is cooked.)

Allow to cool in refrigerator for about 20 minutes.quinoa salad1

Add as much or as little of the following:

  • Tomato or cherry tomatoes
  • Cucumber (I pickled my cucumbers in apple cider vinegar before adding them)
  • Scallions
  • Red Onion (just a small amount since scallions are in this also)
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper

That’s all there is to it…Enjoy!quinoa salad2
