Quinoa, Courgette and Micro green salad

Lately I can’t get enough of quinoa. I use it everywhere I can. Soups, salads, desserts. Everywhere.

This salad is my latest obsession. It is easy to make but still is very nutritional. Made of quinoa, courgette, micro greens, lemon and olive oil. Easy peasy!

Quinoa salad definitely is going to be must-have in my picnic basket as soon as weather in Ireland gets better. Fingers crossed it’s going to be soon...

Prep time : 10 min
Cooking time : 15 min
Serves 2

80 g quinoa
1 large courgette, peeled into strips with a potato peeler
Handful of micro greens
3 tbs olive oil
1 tbs lemon juice
Salt, pepper to taste

Cook the quinoa following the pack instructions then drain and rinse under cold water; drain again.
In a bowl whisk together olive oil, lemon, salt and pepper.
In a large bowl combine quinoa, courgette, micro greens, then pour over the dressing. Toss all ingredients together.
