Quinoa salad

Clean Quinoa Salad:

please use organic produce whenever possible....

cook 1 cup Quinoa in 2 cups boiling filtered water, as directed. cooking doesn't take long. use 1/2 or as much as you want of this amount of quinoa. you can save some for tomorrows salad.
In your favorite salad bowl add:
finely chopped romaine, 4 - 6 leaves
1 - 2 diced green onion (optional)
1/4 cup currants
handful of sunflower and pumpkin seeds
1 cup rinsed defrosted green peas
1 fine chopped plum tomato
very fine chopped peeled carrot
1 - 2 T finely grated garlic
1/4 cup crumbled feta
add fresh herbs if you have them

 add your cooled quinoa to the salad and top with the feta.  Pour your favorite dressing over , toss and eat.  You'll feel great.

Dressing:  1 cup extra virgin olive oil, 1/2 (or more) red wine vinegar, splash of apple cider vinegar or even balsamic, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 5 whole cloves of garlic.  Make dressing in a jar and keep it in the refrigerator to use at all times and replenish as needed.  clean jar once a month. My mother taught me how to make salad dressing and i've been doing this for a very long time.  I never measure the ingredients so alter the ingredients to your liking.
