Quinoa Citrus Salad

on July 9, 2012

This salad is so tasty, so refreshing and SO healthy.

This just might be the summer salad that makes a regular appearance on our table!  🙂

Cook yourself some quinoa (you want about three cups) and set it aside to cool.

The quinoa plus the rest of the ingredients should be enough to serve four to six people…

  • finely chop one red pepper
  • finely chop two celery sticks
  • section one grapefruit and one orange (keep the juice!)
  • slice 6-8 strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons of finely chopped cilantro
  • 1/4c of organic tofu, crumbled (optional)
  • 1/4c of pistachios

Mix all of the above beauties with the cooled quinoa and you’re good to go!

You can serve over a bed of greens or on its own.

Great thing… no added oil!  The juice from the citrus fruit makes a perfect ‘dressing’.  🙂

Yay! Three cheers for summer!!!

Happy, healthy eating y’all!
