Quinoa rich in nutrients and can reduce bad fats in our bodies. Quinoa contains high protein, nutrients that form the essential amino acids, and acid is effective to repair damaged tissue. I love this salad is refreshing and good for you it has a very corn like taste to it, it's a great Spring and Summer salad. Enjoy!


1/2 Cup of Quinoa
3 Tablespoons of lemon Juice
3 Tablespoons of Peppermint
pinch of salt
3 Tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Cup of Parsley
1/2 cup of Scallions
2 Plum Tomatoes, diced
1 Clove of Garlic minced
1 Cup of Chickpeas ( Garbanzo beans)

Cook Quinoa according to instructions let sit and cool off. Add above ingredients and place in refrigerator until ready to serve. Is a no fuss recipe. The more the salad sits in  the refrigerator the more it will absorb the flavors. Is good up to 3-4 days. ENJOY!
