Lime Quinoa Salad with Mint [Seaside]

Rate this Recipe

Enjoy this healthy and flavorful salad any time!

Ingredients:

1 cup dry quinoa
2 tablespoons fruity extra virgin olive oil
4 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 fresh mint sprigs, leaves removed and chopped
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro leaves or parsley, chopped
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
1 handful sweet and ripe cherry or grape tomatoes, quartered
2 tablespoons red onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced

Directions:

  1. Cook the dry quinoa as you would raw rice: in 2 and 1/2 cups fresh salted water, bring to boil then simmer, cover and cook until water is absorbed and quinoa is translucent and fluffy (about 20 minutes). 
  2. Scoop the cooked quinoa into a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients, tossing lightly with a fork until combined. Taste test and adjust seasonings.
  3. Cover and chill. The longer, the better. In fact, I think this salad tastes better the second day, so plan ahead and make it the day before.
