Cook's Tips

Quinoa typically is found in the rice and pasta section of supermarkets. Rinse well before cooking to remove the natural bitter coating, if it is not pre-washed. Quinoa can be cooked the day before and stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator, if desired. For gluten free preparation, confirm all recipe ingredients are gluten free by reading product labels each time you make this recipe.

My husband made this fantastic salad we loved it. Definitely a new family fav! He did add a touch of Italian dressing as it was a touch bland and edamame and pine nuts as we had them leftover. I would add dash of garlic expressions next time.

You can get Organic Diced Tomatoes at Costco by the case. Really good and a money saver!
