Quinoa Salad

*makes 3-4 servings


1 cup dry quinoa
10 baby carrots chopped width-wise
¼ red onion chopped in to small cubes (about ½ cup)
½ green pepper chopped
½ red pepper chopped
1 cup thinly sliced spinach
¼ cup chopped sundried tomato
1-2tbs Dried Dill, to taste
Salt/Pepper to taste
1 cup cooked chicken breast, shredded (optional)


2 tbs olive oil
2 tbs lime juice
1 tbs honey


  1. Cook quinoa. I boil just like pasta for 9minutes and strain. Easiest way to cook it to your particular doneness. Set aside and let cool while you prep the veg.
  2. Chop all veg and add to cooled quinoa. For a side dish, leave as is, for a complete meal add the chicken breast.
  3. Mix olive oil, lime juice and honey. Then add to quinoa and veg mixture.
  4. Add dill, salt and pepper to taste
