Preparation time: 20 min

Cooking time: 20 min

International Quinoa Salad is a refreshing and light, easy to prepare one dish meal that is low in fat and high in protein. I’ve been teaching myself lately about the best quality plant-based protein sources and quinoa is one of them with 20 percent protein.

Originally this formula called for a container full of olive oil but because any oil will harm the interior lining of your arteries. I sneak away from it and instead add the avocado in its place.

International Quinoa Salad

  • 1/2 – 2 cups of water
  • 1 cup quinoa, well rinsed
  • One clove garlic minced
  • One red bell pepper chopped
  • One small cucumber chopped
  • 1 cup of corn
  • Two medium tomatoes chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onion (I like using red onion)
  • 1 1/2 cups garbanzo beans (if using canned, drain and rinse thoroughly)
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • One avocado diced
  • salt to taste

Bring water to boil over high heat. Turn down the heat and cook the quinoa for 20 minutes or until it’s done.¬†Remove lid and fluff with the fork and let cool.

If there is no time to cool, mix in the quinoa while it’s still warm. This makes a nice summery salad as well.
