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

Rainbow Quinoa Salad
from Helyn's Healthy Kitchen

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