Description

A quick and easy cold quinoa salad with fresh mint, craisins and almonds. A great side or appetizer for summer!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Quinoa
  • 1-½ cup Water
  • 1 cup Fresh Mint, Chopped
  • ¼ cups Craisins
  • ¼ cups Sliced Almonds
  • 5 dashes Rice Vinegar, Or To Taste
  • 2 dashes Salt And Pepper, Or To Taste

Preparation

Cook quinoa in the water based on the package instructions. Let it cool. To speed up the cooling process, you can rinse the quinoa in cold water; you will probably lose some through the holes in your strainer, but if you’re in a hurry this method works.

Place quinoa in your serving bowl and add chopped mint, craisins and sliced almonds; mix.

Add rice vinegar to taste. I add a couple of shakes, stir, taste and add more if I think it needs it.

Add salt and pepper to taste.
