transfat (other than naturally occurring fats), foods closer to their true state. Not that I fed my family solely on processed and chemicalized foods but that stuff creeps in especially with the marketing to children. This is a lovely little salad to accompany a sandwich or the grilled chicken marinated with lemon juice, olive oil, summer savory, garlic and parsley that I served it with.
1 cup of cooked quinoa
1/2 cucumber cut in small dice
1/2 red bell pepper chopped fine
1 shallot chopped fine
handful of cherry tomatoes cut in quarters
handful of Kalamata olives chopped fine
Dress with 1/2 cup of red wine vinegar, 2 minced cloves of garlic, olive oil to taste, salt and pepper.
Lovely, simple, and healthy.
