I love a simple healthy delicious meal and that’s why I like this quinoa salad. You just make a whole bunch and keep it in the fridge for when you’re feeling peckish. And it’s so simple!
Cook quinoa: 2 parts water for every 1 part quinoa – bring to boil and simmer covered until water is gone.
Then chop up a whole bunch of fresh parsley *I like to grab a huge couple of fistuls* , lots of cucumber *about half- 3/4 of a large one*, one tomatoe and one red pepper. Mix it all in with the quinoa. Then I pour in a crap load of good quality olive oil *tons and tons until it’s well saturated but not soupy* and the juice of a lemon *or two depending on how tangy you like it*. Yum!
I don’t follow a recipe so much as put in as much as I want of each
thing depending on what I want that day – more cucumber, more red
pepper, etc, etc.

That looks absolutely delicious! I am not a big fan of " healthy" food but one time I tried this salad at my cousin's dinner party and I love it. Very rare that something so healthy could be actually delicious.
Enjoy the rest of the long weekend!
