Quinoa Salad — Delicious!

Now for something completely different!

Quinoa Salad (invented by Sharon Hoffman, December, 2011):

(1 1/2 cups when raw) Cooked Quinoa

1/2 cup shredded carrots (chopped)

3/4 cup edamame

~15 chopped black olives

~ 8 – 10 marinated artichoke chunks, chopped into smaller pieces

1/2 cups sun-dried tomatoes (chopped)

1/2 small onion, very thinly sliced

Dressing (gets mixed in):

Total of 1/2 cup, comprised of 3 parts olive oil to one part vinegar with ~ 1/4 of the vinegar replaced with lemon juice, plus:

1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon dried parsley
2 teaspoons of dried shallots
1/4 teaspoon seasoned pepper

Combine vegetables with Quinoa while still warm, and about half a cup of dressing. Chill, adjust seasoning (dressing) if needed:  A little more vinegar, a little more lemon juice, a little more salt…
