Easy Quinoa Salad

In my attempt to copy one of my favourite dishes at a restaurant (The Beet, Toronto - Buenos Dias Wrap) I checked out the listed ingredients on their menu and came up with this quinoa salad recipe.  It's pretty much just quinoa mixed with pico de gallo.

Easy Quinoa Salad
Vegan, gluten-free
1 cup quinoa
1 - 2 tomato
1 mini cucumber
1/4 onion
Fresh cilantro, to taste
1 lime or 1/2 lemon

Cook quinoa according to pacakage directions.

While quinoa is cooking, chop tomato, cucumber and onion into tiny pieces.  Mix together in a bowl.

Add chopped cilantro and citrus juice and toss with veggies and quinoa.

Avocado - either you love it or hate it!  I personally love it.  If you're preparing as a wrap, just throw some quinoa salad in with some avocado, cheese, tomato slices, beans or anything else you see fit.  Enjoy!

  1. this looks so yummy! I just made a batch of quinoa yesterday, and added sprouted beans, shredded beets, cucumber, lemon juice and olive oil and eat it cold. I think yours will be my next mixture! :) Thanks for sharing!
