summer fresh quinoa salad

delicious

I have been trying to find delicious and simple ways to cut the “bad” carbs from our diet and this is one of our favorites. Similar to our familiar traditional pasta salad, this one skips the high carb count and goes well with so many of our usual summertime standbys!

Summer Fresh Quinoa Salad

2 cups cooked quinoa

1/2 cup finely chopped red onion

2 cups chopped tomatoes

2 cups chopped cucumbers

1/4 cup sliced Kalamata olives

1 Tbs. minced garlic

juice of one fresh lemon

1/2 cup olive oil

fresh ground pepper

fresh ground pink Himalayan salt

Mix garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper and set aside while quinoa cooks and cools. Mix all ingredients together and refrigerate until chilled. Serve alongside grilled meats or with a fruit salad for lunch or supper. Delicious!!!
