Quinoa Salad

Eating healthy does not mean that you have to make anything complicated. This simple salad goes well with grilled lamb, meat or fish kebobs, any grilled meat in general. It stands well on its own too for a light lunch.

Quinoa Salad

3 cups quinoa
6 plum tomatoes, diced
1 yellow pepper, diced
1/4 cup fresh herbs, chopped (basil, cilantro,'s up to you!)
1 lemon, for juice
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tsp hot sauce (my favorite is the Cholula hot sauce)
Salt and pepper to taste

Cook the quinoa according to package instruction. Let cool completely. When cold, add the vegetables, herbs, lemon juice, olive oil, hot sauce and salt and pepper. Mix well and refrigerate for a few hours to let the flavors blend.
