Vegan Delite – Tri Color Quinoa salad

Here is a recipe that is not only simple but it is sure to appeal to everyone.  If you love quinoa, try this recipe.  With the addition of beans and other super fresh herbs you are sure to make this a favorite.  I encourage you also to add or substitute different beans.  For this recipe I used canned beans but if you are comfortable using dry beans definitely give it a shot.  If you never tried cooking quinoa before, don’t be afraid.  12 minutes and you are set.  Enjoy…

  1. Cook quinoa according to directions. I cooked the quinoa for 12 minutes then drained. Set aside.
  2. Drain and rinse both cans of beans and set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl add quinoa and beans.
  4. Add chopped celery, parsley, cilantro and scallion and mix.
  5. Add vinegar and oil and stir in.
  6. Add salt and pepper and crushed red pepper and mix thoroughly.
  7. Store in the refrigerator.
