Quick Fix – Quinoa Salad

Yes, I’m at it again! A salad. The beauty of salads is that they take no time at all to make and if I get it right, the kids even like them. I got a thumbs up for this one (o.k. someone did pick out all the tomatoes but I don’t mind that as long as they go along with my experiments). So here’s my recipe…

@ Mrs. Twinkle

The Salad
2 cups quinoa (about 200g)
1 spring onion
1 bell pepper
1 avacado
1 bunch of parsley
2 handfuls of cherry tomatoes
1 handful of chopped almonds

The Dressing
Juice of 1 Lemon
2 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp white balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp honey
salt & pepper

Cook the quinoa seeds in double the amount of water for about 10 minutes and leave to cool. In the mean time chop up the ingredients and mix the dressing. When finish through it all together. Et voilà! Quick Fix!



  1. oh why didn’t I buy the avocados earlier at the grocery today? I have all the other ingredients! I love “super” salads for lunch, they are so refreshing and gives you just enough energy to keep going 😉
