My Quinoa Summer Salad!
I have not cooked too much with quinoa and I am now slightly obsessed with it! Quinoa is so versatile - hot or cold, delicious and healthy - basically everything I look for in new foods to create recipes with!
I made a package of quinoa and used Gwyneth Paltrow's It's All Good , new cookbook instructions for perfect quinoa. Yes, it worked and came out perfect!
2 Cups Cooked Organic Quinoa
1 Large Cucumber Diced (you can leave the peel on, but I like most of the peel off)
1 Small Avocado ( perfectly ripe, makes all the difference)
3 Large Pieces of Dried Unsulphured Mangoes
1 Tomato (non GMO)
3 Branches of Italian Parsley (so nutritious)
3-4 Tablespoons of Organic Olive Oil
Optional topping - Add a Dollop Organic Greek Yogurt Plain
Dice your ingredients and add on top of your cooled quinoa.
Add olive oil to taste and a dollop of Organic Greek Yogurt if you choose.
Hot or Cold this is -
Quinoa summer salad is so simple and light - perfect for a hot summer day.
My leftovers in my Weck Jar (love these)!
My Gwyneth Paltrow cookbook is mine, a birthday gift (not sponsored)
And YES I absolutely love it and highly recommend it and it is one of my must-have travel books.
Yes, I am an ambassador for Stonyfield Organic Yogurt, so I do recommend their yogurt. However, whether you purchase Stonyfield or not - always purchase organic when it comes to dairy products.
As always, I buy organic, Fair Trade and NON-GMO as often as possible!
