This salad is delicious! It's also gluten-free, vegan-friendly and quick and easy to make. Quinoa is tossed with vegetables and herbs in a basalmic-olive oil dressing. Serve as is or alongside a summer bbq.
Love this salad. Used white instead of red onion and red pepper instead of yellow as that was all I had in the cupboard and it was fantastic. Yum! - 15 Jul 2012
FOR WARM QUINOA VEGETABLE SALAD: I do not like cold salads/hard veggies so I made warm version of this! All you have to do is heat some oil in a pan and fry the bell peppers and carrots. Once they are semi-tender add the corn and tomato until the veggies are as soft as desired. Meanwhile, add the cilantro, mint, oil and balsamic vinegar (I needed double oil/vinegar than what the recipe said) and let it sit until the quinoa is cooked. Once it's ready, add it all together and you have warm quinoa vegetable salad! - 12 Sep 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
