Days off are awesome. They are even better spent with people you love. A good friend was in town and we went to a great lookout park and had a picnic centered around Quinoa Salad.
The salad was very different than the black bean one I posted recently. The stars of this salad (besides quinoa): spinach, kalamata olives, red onion, cucumber (grown by Liz!) and tomatoes. We chopped them into whatever size we wanted and mixed them with a couple cups of cooked quinoa.
~1 Tbsp Olive oil
~1 Tbsp White wine vinegar
~1-2 Tbsp Lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
