Herbed Quinoa salad with zesty lemon dressing

Quinoa has been in the spotlight for a few years now! Gluten-free, low-calorie, high in fibre and a source of protein, there's a reason why it's so highly rated as a grain alternative. It's a great way to bulk up salads and to add a nutritional boost, as we show it the recipe below. Perfect for lunch or a side for dinner.


1-2 cups cooked quinoa

½ cup chopped parsley

½ cup chopped cilantro

1/3 cup chopped mint

1 cucumber, diced

2 shallots, thinly sliced

½ green capsicum diced

½ pepitas(soaked overnight)

Salt and pepper


Green olives


Green chili
