Italian Quinoa Salad

Serves 4-6

Once again, the versatility of quinoa never ceases to amaze me. I whipped this up on a whim and it was fabulous. It pairs beautifully with grilled fish.


  • 1 cup of quinoa cooked in chicken broth according to package instructions

  • 2 medium sized ripe tomatoes, diced

  • 1 large shallots, minced

  • 1/3 red onion, diced fine

  • 1/3 cup of chopped fresh basil

  • ½ cup of chopped fresh parsley

  • Juice of one lemon

  • 2 ½ tbsp of extra virgin olive oil


Combine all ingredients in a large wooden salad bowl. Gently stir until thoroughly combined.
