Doesn’t this salad look amazing!?
I have a horrible habit of looking at a recipe and making up my own concoction based on the picture. Following recipes is not my forte.
I had some left over cooked quinoa in the fridge, along with some scallions and a zucchini that were nearing extinction. My version turned out pretty well. Here is what I used:
1 clove garlic, minced
1 T olive oil
1 cup frozen corn, thawed
1 medium zucchini, diced
2 cups cooked quinoa
salt and pepper, to taste
5-6 scallions (white and green parts), diced
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/2 – 3/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
saute garlic, corn and zucchini in olive oil until soft and fragrant. (about 4 minutes). Add quinoa, salt and pepper and heat through (about 2 minutes). Add scallions and parmesan cheese (cook for 1 minute). Add lemon juice and serve!
It was a quick and delicious side dish. I served it with marinated tomatoes and a jelly donut.
No, no…that is actually a cheeseburger on a bagel thin with dill relish. Bet I fooled ya though!
