Directions

  1. Bring water to a boil in a pot; add white quinoa and red quinoa. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until water is absorbed, 15 minutes. Set quinoa aside to cool while you complete the remaining steps.
  2. Combine red onions, red bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, sea salt, and black pepper together in a bowl. Stir in white and red quinoa.
  3. Whisk olive oil and lime juice together in a separate bowl; pour over quinoa mixture. Stir to coat. Add cilantro and stir to incorporate. Cover salad and refrigerate for flavors to blend, at least 4 hours.

This was very, very delish! The only change I made was using Grape Seed Oil instead of Olive Oil! BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE... I love stuffed bell peppers but have cut back on rice these days. I took half of the final product and added it to a mixture of browned 1 pound lean ground beef and 1/4 hot Italian sausage and 2 cups of tomato sauce. Stuffed peppers and baked. YUM!

I think this has potential but it is missing something. Would love to come back to this recipe in a few months and see if anykne has suggestions. I chopped up 1 red onion and I could have used much less. The onion completely over powered the dish. Also, my husband and I thought it could have used more lime. I have been looking for a good quinoa salad for awhile. I am willing to give this another try if anyone has some suggestions.

I made a 1/2 recipe, and used only white quinoa, since that's what I had. This is a delicious summer cool salad--we loved it!
