Quinoa Salad //

Wednesday, 11 September 2013

Even though it is the middle of September, we are still having summer weather here in Vancouver, so why not indulge in a delicious fresh summer salad. I actually got the recipe for this from my sister which she sniped from cactus club! Either way, it is so yummy I had to share!

All you have to do is chop up the carrots, peas, red pepper, mint, basil and dates, cook the quinoa as per usual (one cup quinoa to two cups water), saute the shrimp in a bit of garlic and butter, let the quinoa and shrimp cool in the fridge, then toss everything together with the crumbled feta, drizzle some olive oil and balsamic and you're good to go! I added some toasted french bread and sliced avocado as well which made the dish absolutely perfect! Super easy and super healthy - enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Wednesday.
