Another of my favorite cooking divas is Claire Robinson. Her 5 Ingredient Fix episode last week focused on eating healthy and she made this Quickie Quinoa Salad. I've never had quinoa before, but I was up to giving it a try since this dish looked so good. For those who don't know, quinoa (pronounced keen-wa) is a complete protein grain that is said to be one of the best protein sources around! Quinoa contains no gluten, so it's perfect for those that follow a gluten-free/wheat-free diet.
So I made this dish for lunch today and I was not disappointed! The taste and texture were both light and wonderful, and I have enough leftovers for a few more lunches. One note: I did not have lemon infused olive oil on hand so I used plain extra virgin olive oil. It still tasted fantastic! Below are a few pics, and the recipe follows.
