We love quinoa! This wonderfully nutty grain is full of protein and has a texture that is irresistible. It is great with salads – especially this one! The watercress and sun-dried tomatoes add a kick, while the avocado and cucumber cool it down.
- 1/4 cup uncooked quinoa
- 2 cups watercress
- 1 shot glass edamame
- 1 shot glass avocado
- 1 shot glass cucumber
- 1 shot glass chopped sun-dried tomatoes
- 1 shot glass grated parmesan cheese
- 1 shot glass toasted pine nuts
- My Simple Vinaigrette
- Chives for garnish
Cook, salt, drain, and cool the quinoa. Then add watercress, edamame, avocado, cucumber, sun-dried tomatoes, cheese, and pine nuts. Toss. Drizzle with the vinaigrette and sprinkle chives on top. Bon appétit!
