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

  • 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
  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.

I'm going to give it a try, Karen, and thanks for sharing it. It sounds interesting!
