This salad is great, it's different yet contains many ingredients we all know and love.
My daughters loved it.
1/2 head of broccoli
1 cucumber (quartered)
1 tomato sliced
1 cup cooked quinoa
Vinaigrette: 1/4 cup olive oil, 1/4 red wine, 1 tsp sugar, 1 tsp salt,
pepper & a about 3 chopped kalamata olives.
Let's get started...
Cook quinoa accordingly, set aside & allow to cool completely.
In a pot of boiling water, throw in broccoli & cauliflower & cook for 2 minutes. Take out & blanch in icy water ( this retains their color & stops the cooking). Meanwhile chop all the remaining veggies. Place everything in a large mixing bowl, add cooked quinoa, soup on desired amount of vinaigrette. Combine all ingredients & Enjoy!!!
