Quinoa Veggie Salad

If you like chopping veggies as much as I do you’ll love this salad. It is a good thing to make after dinner while you still have everything out, and you can use leftover rice, and if you serve quionoa for dinner you can make extra for the salad. You can make this salad and then keep in the fridge for an easy snack.

This is really just a list of ideas, there are many other things you can put into the salad.

1 cup cooked then cooled quinoa
1/2 cup of other grain, bean or legume (be sure to try wild rice)
1/4 cup fresh or frozen peas
1/4 cup fresh or frozen corn
1/4 cup finely chopped carrot
1/4 cup finely chopped celery
1/4 cup finely chopped onion

You get the idea, mix them all up in a big bowl. It is best after sitting in the fridge a few hours as the onion flavor gets picked up by the grains.
