Quinoa & Mixed Veggies Salad

Quinoa is taking an important part in our daily menu nowadays, recently while doing my shopping in an organic shop i found red quinoas which attracted me a lot and immediatley i picked two packets of 500grams as i was planning to add quinoa atleast once a day in our menu with anything as anything, yep since we had our Quinoa & Mixed Fruits Salad, i couldnt able to stop adding some cooked quinoa to our salads..This red quinoa and mixed veggies salad is one of the best refreshing, easiest and filling salad which suits perfectly for our lunch or either for our dinner with a simple bread toast or with a bowl of soup..This salad is completely very easy to prepare also its really very catchy and colourful, very pleasant salad to enjoy without any guilt...Needless to say that this salad was really tasty, obviously this salad is one of the fabulous salad i have prepared recently..


Few Lettuce leaves
1/2cup Cooked quinoa
2nos  Carrots (grated)
1no Cucumber (sliced as cubes)
Few Cherry tomatoes
2tbsp Fried Onions
Few red onions (chopped)
1/2tsp Pepper powder
Salt
Olive oil

Take the lettuce leaves, cooked quinoa, grated carrots,cubes cucumber chunks, chopped tomatoes or cherry tomatoes, fried onions, chopped red onions in a large bowl..make a dressing with enough olive oil, salt and pepper powder and toss gently the veggies until they get well mixed..

Serve immediately!!
