Easy Quinoa Salad
2 cups uncooked quinoa
4 cups beef or chicken bone broth
1 5-ounce package spring mix
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt to taste
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
Juice of 1 lemon
Rinse quinoa under cold running water.
Transfer cleaned quinoa in a large saucepan, add bone broth and bring to a boil. Switch heat to low and let it simmer for 15-25 minutes until the quinoa is tender and all the liquid has been absorbed.
Once the quinoa is cooked, remove from heat and let cool completely.
In a large bowl or in the same saucepan, add spring mix, cherry tomatoes, olive oil, salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Mix until all ingredients are well combined. Enjoy!
This easy quinoa salad recipe may be simple, but it’s definitely not boring. Make it as a side for a good summer barbecue dish or picnic or to complement some grilled kebabs.
