It’s been a hot minute since I last shared a recipe, huh? Well, this one has been invented in many forms in our house over the past couple of months so I decided it was time to share the goodness.
It was first presented to me during a bachelorette weekend getaway & I couldn’t get home to reinvent it fast enough.
The bones of the recipe are this:
quinoa + diced vegetables + bottled salad dressing
That’s all. But the different spins you can take are neverending.
1.5 cups quinoa, cooked according to package instructions & cooled
2 bell peppers, any color, de-seeded & diced
1/4 cup diced red onion, more or less to taste
zest & juice of one lemon
salt & pepper, to taste
Mix all ingredients.
Add toppings of choice.
Add roasted sweet potato chunks, toss with Honey Mustard vinaigrette.
Add any other vegetables- broccoli, cucumbers, tomatoes, etc. Add more dressing if you add more veggies!
Add peanuts & carrots, toss with Sesame Ginger vinaigrette.
Add jalapeños & cilantro, toss with Chile Lime vinaigrette.
The possibilities are endless and the results are bound to be delicious!
