Quinoa Salad

A friend of mine gave me this Quinoa salad recipe; it's loaded with vegetables and really delicious.

Red cabbage
Red Quinoa
Chick Peas
Green onions
Sesame oil
Rice wine vinegar
Grape seed oil
Fresh garlic
Fresh Lemons

Take your cabbage, carrots, onions, and fennel and julienne them into long thing strips. The thinner the better, especially with carrots, cabbage, and fennel. Mix equal portions of the above together in a small mixing boil.

Boil 1 cup of quinoa with 2 cups of water until cooked then move into a bowl and let cool in the fridge. Once cool remove the quinoa, add it to the vegetables and add 1 can of chick peas drained and rinsed.


1/8 cup of grape seed oil
1/8 cup of toasted sesame oil
splash of rice wine vinegar
1 clove of fresh garlic minced
1/2 of a lemon's juice and 1/2 of a lemon's zest
course black pepper

Mix everything together, add more of what you feel it may be missing to desired taste.
