Here’s a salad idea from 2013 that I’m bringing over from my old blog’s recipe page. The original recipe, which I varied, can be found here. This was my second time cooking with quinoa, which I struggle to enjoy. But this worked fine!
3/4 cup quinoa, rinsed
2 tomatoes, diced or 1/2 punnet cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 red onion, quartered and sliced thinly
A large handful of snow peas, sliced crossways
4 radicchio leaves, shredded
1/4 cup parsley leaves, chopped
1/4 cup basil leaves, chopped
1/2 long red (mild) chilli, diced finely
1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
1tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper
Put quinoa and 1 1/2 cups cold water into a saucepan. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10-12 mins. Drain.
Add salad ingredients and mix gently. Combine oil, lemon juice and salt and pepper. Toss salad.
