Summer Quinoa Salad

Going to a potluck? Packing for a picnic? Then you’ll want a nice salad to compliment the main course. This summer, however, let’s drop the potatoes and eggs for something healthier and fresher: a quinoa salad with bell peppers and lime! This recipe comes from Laura Violet at AllRecipes.com.
What You’ll Need
1 Red Bell Pepper
1 Yellow Bell Pepper
1 1/2 Large Red Onions
1 Cup of White Quinoa
1 Cup of Red Quinoa
1 Teaspoon Salt (Preferably Sea Salt)
1/4 Cup of Olive Oil
2 Limes
Cilantro

Let’s Get Cooking
– Step 1 –
Fill a pot with four cups of water, bring it to a boil, and add the quinoa.

– Step 2 –
Bring the water down to a simmer, cover the pot, and let it sit for fifteen minutes. After that, move it to the side and let it cool.

– Step 3 –
While the quinoa cools, chop up your bell peppers and onions and add them to a large bowl. Add in the salt and pepper, mix it all together, and then mix in the quinoa.

– Step 4 –
Juice the limes and then, in a separate bowl, whisk the olive oil and lime juice together.

– Step 5 –
Pour the olive oil/lime juice mixture over the quinoa and mix it it.

– Step 6 –
Chop up two tablespoons of cilantro and mix that into the salad.

– Step 7 –
Cover the salad in saran wrap and pop it in the fridge for four hours to let the flavors sink in.

Now you’ve got a fresh, healthy salad for your summer get-togethers. Thanks again to Laura Violet for this great recipe – we hope you enjoy it!

1 starI wish I could assign less than 1 star. I had my carpet cleaned with Oxi Fresh on Wednesday 5/272020 at approximately 1030 am. My carpets look amazing. I am completely satisfied with the cleaning service that I received. I have been using Oxi Fresh for 6 years now to clean the carpets in my home. However, on this occasion my Apple EarPods were stolen at the same time that my carpet was cleaned. When I called Oxi Fresh to discuss the situation I was made to feel that I was lying. I told her that I did not want anything, just that the company needed to know what happened. And to make matters worse, the technician that came to my home started calling and texting me. I was made to feel like I was being dishonest and wrong for calling. The owner did call. I did make it known to him that I am not asking for anything, just want the company to know what happened. I am shocked and humiliated at the same time. Where do we go from here? Should I continue to do business with this organization. CW. - 05/29/2020
