Foodie Love ~ Quinoa Salad

Is there anything better than a great quinoa salad on a early fall day?

We love quinoa in this house. We use it in casseroles  we use it in place of rice, we add it to stuffed peppers and obviously we make salads with it. We recently had a dinner at the Unheardof restaurant here in the city. They gave us the most incredible quinoa salad that I knew I had to try to recreate when we got home. Here is the recipe I have come up with. Simple and delicious!

The Necessities:
~ 1/2 Cup of Tomato chopped into small pieces

~ 3/4 Cup of Cucumber chopped into small pieces
~ 1 Clove of Garlic copped
~ 2 Cups of cooked Quinoa (about 1/2 Cup uncooked)
~ 1 Tbs of Fresh Dill
~ 1 Tbs Olive Oil
~ 1 1/2 Tbs of Balsamic Vinegar

The Process:
~ Start with cooled quinoa
~ Mix in tomato, cucumber, dill, and garlic
~ In a small container place the olive oil and balsamic vinegar
~ Shake until well mixed
~ Pour oil mixture into salad and mix until everything is well coated
~ Cover and place in fridge until ready to serve
~ Enjoy!
