“This is a wonderful dish - light and very tasty! My four kids (ages 2-7) ate it up and asked for more!” - by JANELLECOLE
Original recipe yields 5 cups
- Heat the canola oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir the garlic and 1/4 cup onion in the hot oil until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Pour in the water, 2 teaspoons salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper and bring to a boil; stir the quinoa into the mixture, reduce heat to medium-low, and cover. Simmer until the quinoa is tender, about 20 minutes. Drain any remaining water from the quinoa with a mesh strainer and transfer to a large mixing bowl. Refrigerate until cold.
- Stir the tomato, carrots, bell pepper, cucumber, corn, and 1/4 cup red onion into the chilled quinoa. Season with cilantro, mint, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Drizzle the olive oil and balsamic vinegar over the salad; gently stir until evenly mixed.

"FOR WARM QUINOA VEGETABLE SALAD: I do not like cold salads/hard veggies so I made warm version of this! All you have to do is heat some oil in a pan and fry the bell peppers and carrots. Once they are..." See more semi-tender add the corn and tomato until the veggies are as soft as desired. Meanwhile, add the cilantro, mint, oil and balsamic vinegar (I needed double oil/vinegar than what the recipe said) and let it sit until the quinoa is cooked. Once it's ready, add it all together and you have warm quinoa vegetable salad!"
