Quinoa Salad

For this weeks meal I decided to make quinoa salad because I have been trying to eat more healthy and I thought, what’s more healthy than quinoa salad. It has a decent amount of carbs but it contains, it has all nine essential amino acids, fibre, minerals, and quinoa is known as one of the most healthiest and most nutritious foods on the planet. It didn’t take much time to make but it needed a lot of time to prep. While the quinoa was cooking, I had to prepare all the vegetables; cucumber, red pepper, red onion and chick peas. After chopping all those ingredients up I didn’t have time to make the dressing before the quinoa was done so I mixed all the ingredients together and let it sit in the pan to warm it up. The dressing consist of lemon juice, red wine vinegar, olive oil, minced garlic, salt and pepper to taste. I made 12 servings so I could have left overs after my family ate it for lunch, I wanted it for other meals throughout the week because its so healthy and I love the taste of this salad. It’s one my favourite salads!
