Quinoa Salad

3 cups cooked quinoa (see recipe below for cooking instructions)

1 carrot, sliced

1 green onion, chopped

½ cup roasted sunflower seeds

Combine all ingredients and toss with vinaigrette dressing.  (You will not need to use all of the vinaigrette dressing recipes to cover salad; use about ¼-⅓ cup of dressing for this salad).  To make a more complete meal, add cut-up cooked chicken, beef, sausage or cooked legumes.

To cook quinoa

Measure 1 cup of quinoa into a pot and fill the pot with cold water.  Using your hands, wash quinoa in the cold water by swishing it around.  Use a strainer to drain the quinoa.  Place quinoa back into the pot and add 1½ cups of cold water and  ½ teaspoon of sea salt.  You may also add 1 teaspoon of coconut oil for extra flavour and for good fats added to the diet.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and cook for 14-16 minutes.  Quinoa should be light, fluffy and moist-looking when cooked.

Yields 3 cups of cooked quinoa.
