Quinoa Cucumber Salad

Try this dish with any grain such as bulgur wheat or barley.

I’m not usually wild about cucumbers, but this recipe is full of complimentary flavors and I loved the combination!  This dish can stand alone as lunch or be served as a side.  The weather is warming up, so if I get invited to any springtime picnics I think I’ll choose to bring this cool salad!

Ingredients:

1 Cucumber, chopped

1 Pack cherry tomatoes

4 Green onions chopped small (green and white parts)

1/2 Cup chopped fresh basil

1 Cup quinoa, cooked according to package directions

Zest and juice of 1 lemon

Combine the cucumber, cherry tomatoes, green onions, fresh basil and quinoa.  Add the lemon zest and juice and mix all ingredients well.  Chill for 1 hour before serving, if desired.

This recipe is great for those with an intolerance to gluten.  But it’s also just plain delicious!
