Quinoa Salad

If you're looking for a healthy and tasty summer lunch (or light dinner), then this recipe is for you! I shared it at last spring's MOPS recipe swap and I thought I would share it again here.

Quinoa Lunch Salad

2 cups quinoa, cooked according to directions
2 cups cooked chickpeas (about 1 and 1/2 cans of chickpeas)
1 can diced tomatoes, drained
1 or 2 chopped zucchini
1 bell pepper, yellow or orange (optional)
1/2 red onion, diced


1/2 cup olive oil
slightly less than 1/2 cup lime juice
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp basil (parsley works too)


Cook quinoa as directed. Chop zucchini, red onion, and bell pepper and cook in some olive oil. Drain tomatoes and chickpeas. Throw it all together. Whisk together the dressing and pour. SALT to taste! Serve cold or room temperature.
