With summer approaching, I am always looking for new salad dishes to try. And of course, I am always looking for new quinoa recipes! The inspiration for this dish was found in Clean Eating magazine. (Which is one of my favorite cooking magazines, by the way.)
The orginal used Bulgur and mint, neither of which I care for. Still, I knew it had the makings of a good Quinoa Salad, so I modified it to suit my tastes! I am a big fan of spicy dishes, and this quinoa salad does pack a little punch. You can adjust the cilantro, ground chipolte and red pepper to suit your own tastes. Try it out – it may become one of your favorite ways of cooking quinoa!
One thing I really like about this quinoa salad is that is is really healthy. I am always trying to eat healthy – especially during swimsuit season! Do you have quinoa recipes you would like to share? Drop us a line!
