1 cup cooked and cooled quinoa
Vegetable broth (to cook quinoa in)
1 can mixed beans
1 red pepper (chopped)
2 stalks celery (chopped)
1 medium cucumber or zucchini or both
1 scallion or more (to your taste)
3-4 tablespoons of good olive oil (or more, I like a lot of it)
1 Tbsp oregano
Good balsamic vinegar (to taste)
Salt and pepper to taste
Follow package directions to cook the quinoa. Usually a 2:1 ratio.
Drain and rinse beans, then add to bowl.
Chop all vegetables and add to bowl.
Once quinoa has cooled, add to bowl with remaining ingredients.
Voilà! A nutritious salad filled with vitamins and fiber. Let me know what you think!
