I've made this twice now for my vegetarian husband and myself. It's a great warm weather meal.

Rainbow Quinoa Salad (http://helynshealthykitchen.blogspot.com/2013/05/rainbow-quinoa-salad.html?utm_source=feedly) from Helyn's Healthy Kitchen (http://helynshealthykitchen.blogspot.com/)

Ingredients:

2 cups cooked quinoa
1 cup frozen corn, thawed
1 cup frozen sweet peas, thawed
1 cup chopped red bell pepper
1 cup chopped kale
cup chopped onion
cup raw sunflower seeds
2 TBS Spike salt-free seasoning
2 TBS lemon juice
1 can garbanzo beans, drainedDirections:

Cook the quinoa per package directions. I found that about 3/4 cup uncooked quinoa made the right amount.
Let the quinoa cool, add all remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
