Quinoa Salad

Easy, quick quinoa salad.


  • ½ cup quinoa, cooked and cooled
  • 1  diced cucumber  (about 1 cup)
  • 2 diced  tomatoes (about 1 cup )
  • scallion
  • radish (optional)
  • bell pepper (optional)
  • salt, pepper
  • cilantro


  • Cook the quinoa according to package directions in salted water.
  • Toss the diced cucumber, radish, bell pepper, diced tomato, and sliced scallion in a bowl and add salt and pepper
  • When the quinoa is cooled add it to the rest of the ingredients
  • Let the salad sit for 10-20 minutes to let the flavors meld together before serving.

If you desire you can add dressing, olive oil or make your own mixture to add to the salad. F.ex. with chopped parsley.

But salad is quite moist as it is.
