This is a yummy, no fail salad.  You can use any vegetables you have on hand and it will be turn out fantastic.

1 cup cooked quinoa*
2/3 cup edamame
1/4 cup cucumber
1/4 cup carrots
I like to add tomatoes, corn and broccoli too.

2 tsp rice vinegar
2 tsp sesame oil
1/4 tsp fresh ginger
1/4 tsp fresh garlic
Salt and pepper to taste

*If you have never cooked quinoa before, it's super easy!  1 cup dry makes 3 cups to eat.  I use a 1:1 ratio.

Rinse 1 cup quinoa under water until you don't see "suds".  If you don't rinse, your quinoa will taste bitter.
Put in a pot with 1 cup vegetable broth, bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 30 minutes.  Fluff with a fork and it's ready.

If I'm eating it as a breakfast cereal or adding it to a sweeter dish, I cook it with water.

PS - I got this salad recipe from Jenny at The Cozy Project.  Take a looksee at her Etsy shop.  Her cozies are environmentally friendly, made for hot and cold drinks and adorable!

Quinoa is so good for you, I can't wait to add it into my diet! As soon as I get home I'm going to make this! :)
