QUINOA SALAD


Quinoa Salad

The first time I encountered quinoa I was living with my cousin in Manhattan on the lower east side. She was not the most handy person in the kitchen. When I walked in she yelled from her bedroom that the air-popper may be broken as she tried to “pop” the little seeds like you would pop corn and they got sucked into the air vents. Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) has been grown for thousands of years in the Andes mountains in South America. It is often thought of as a grain, but it is actually the seed of a leafy green plant called Chenopodium (also known as goosefoot), which is related to Swiss chard and spinach. This recipe is free of: Milk, Peanut, Egg, Soy, Tree nut, Corn, Gluten, Wheat, Fish, Shellfish, Sesame
