Recipe: Quinoa Salad

Superfoods has been a term that has been thrown around a lot these days. Kale is probably the most popular "superfood" but I'm partial to quinoa. 

Quinoa is a grain that is gluten free and high in protein. It's a germinated grain that has excellent nutritional value. A great alternative to rice, barley, etc... 


1 cup quinoa 
2 cups water
1 tomato, diced
1/2 english cucumber, diced
1/2 tbs red onions, chopped
1 cup arugula, stemmed removed and chopped fine
2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tbs olive oil
1/2 lemon juiced

Cook the quinoa in the two cups water with a 1 tsp salt. This should cook high for 15 minutes. Once completed, sit aside to cool

Once cooled, mix the remaining ingredients and toss. Add more salt while tasting. As I always say, it's all based on preference.
