Simple Quinoa Salad

How many vegetables to you eat in a day?
This week’s challenge in my virtual FIT CAMP is to eat 4 servings (1 cup each) of vegetables daily.

We prepped over the weekend to make this simple quinoa salad to set ourselves up for success!
I divided into 4 grab n go mason jars 😉

(makes 4 servings)

2 cups cooked quinoa
4 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
Himalayan salt (optional, to taste)
Bragg Liquid Aminos (optional, to taste)
4 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 medium tomatoes, diced (I use 2 cups grape tomatoes, halved)
1 English cucumber, diced
6 Tbsp pitted, sliced kalamata olives
6 Tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley
3 Tbsp finely chopped fresh mint leaves

1. Combine quinoa, oil, lemon juice & optional ingredients in large bowl and mix well.
2. Add tomato, cucumber, olives. Toss gently to blend.
3. Gently fold in herbs (parsley & mint).
4. Best if cover & let marinate in refrigerator.

This is a great healthy dish to bring to a potluck or BBQ!
Plus quinoa is a complete protein making it ideal for vegetarians & vegans.
