Tasty Summer Side

I always forget that I have quinoa in the cupboard. Today I remembered and threw this together early in the day so the flavors would have some time to develop. Super easy and healthful!

Quinoa (keen-wa) with Mint and Lime

1 cup quinoa (cooked according to pkg directions)
handful of cherry tomatoes, halved
3 green onions, sliced
2 T olive oil
Juice of two limes
Salt and pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
Handful of mint and flat leaf parsley

Put cooked quinoa in medium bowl-throw the rest of the ingredients in and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for several hours.

This dish would be great with sliced radishes, chopped cucumber or whatever sounds good.

I served it with grilled chicken and baked sweet potatoes. Yummy!
