  • ½ cup of cherry tomatoes, halved
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • ½ cucumber cut into small pieces
  • 2 tbsp. fresh mint
  • 2 tbsp. of extra virgin olive oil

Boil the two cups of water with the cup of quinoa. Once it boils, lower the heat and cook until water is absorbed and quinoa is soft (12 min. Approximately). Remove from heat, let stand 1 minute and fluff with a fork. Let cool.

Step 2

Once the quinoa has cooled, mix all ingredients in a salad bowl.

Step 3

It can be enjoyed by itself or in lettuce wraps.
