    • I made this for a side dish the other day- but it ended up being so good, my family ate it for the MAIN DISH.  The toasted almonds are the secret ingredient!  This will last in the refrigerator for a few days, so it is great for a leftover.  Seriously...so yummy!



      Quinoa Salad with Toasted Almonds and Zucchini 


      Ingredients

      1/2 cup quinoa

      1 TBS Olive Oil

      1 Yellow Pepper, cut into small pieces

      2 garlic cloves, minced

      2 green onions, diced

      1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes

      1 zucchini, sliced

      1 celery stalk, diced

      1/2 cup silvered almonds, toasted*

      1/4 teaspoon salt

      1 lime, halved


      Directions

      Cook the quinoa (1 cup water to the 1/2 cup grains- place in boiling water, turn down and simmer for 15 minutes covered).

      While Quinoa is cooking, heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in saucepan on medium heat.  Add bell pepper, garlic, green onions, and red pepper flakes; cook, stirring frequently, until the bell pepper has softened, about 5 minutes.  Add zucchini; cook until tender, about 5 minutes.

      Combine cooked quinoa and zucchini mixture in large bowl.  Stir in celery, almonds, and remaining oil olive; season with salt and fluff with fork.

      Squeeze the lime over the salad just before serving.
