Sunday Supper {Quinoa Salad}

Happy Sunday, y’all!!  It’s been quite some time since I’ve done a Sunday Supper.  This one is just delectable for a warm summer evening spent dining alfresco.  I know I relish a summer recipe that doesn’t heat up the kitchen and is super easy to make with the littles at home all day.

Quinoa Salad
1 cup uncooked quinoa
15 oz. can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1 large tomato, diced
1½ cups corn (I used frozen because I had it.  Canned or fresh would work too.)
2 cups shelled edamame (also frozen)
4 green onions, chopped
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp chili powder
⅛ tsp freshly ground black pepper
dash of cayenne

2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

  • Rinse quinoa, and cook according to package directions.
  • Add all other ingredients to a very large bowl.
  • After the quinoa is done, combine everything in the large bowl and mix well to combine.
I’ve been making this for over a year, but it fell out of the rotation for a while.  I love to mix up a huge bowl on Monday morning and have it for lunches and snacks throughout the week.  The littles and Honey like it too, so last week we made a light dinner out of it!
With that, I’m off to start the day!!!

  1. I tried this last night, delicious! Next time I will add some flavor infused oil rather than olive oil for another layer of flavor.
