I love quinoa and it is supposed to be so good for you.
This is a simple and refreshing salad.
Two cups chicken or vegetable stock
One cup quinoa
2 diced avocados
12 sliced grape tomatoes
Two cups chopped baby kale
Two cups arugula
Two cups baby spinach
Four diced scallions
One diced red pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 cloves garlic
One tablespoon shallots
6 tablespoons apple cider or red wine vinegar
6 tablespoons olive oil
Mix the quinoa and broth and bring to a boil
Cover the pot and let cook for another 10 minutes on low or until all the broth is absorbed.
Mix the salt and garlic in the food processor till it is chopped well.
Mix in the shallots, vinegar and oil.
Pulse till the dressing is smooth
Mix the hot cooked quinoa with the kale and about a third of the dressing.
Add the spinach, arugula, scallions, red pepper and tomatoes.
Add a third of the dressing and toss.
Mix the avocado with the rest of the dressing.
Put on top of everything. Toss again.
Drizzle with your favorite hot sauce.
This is a recipe I found on Pinterest from the gardengrazer.com
I changed it just a little by increasing the dressing and adding a couple of things.
Thank you garden grazer.
