Red Quinoa Salad with Veggies

There are so many delicious dishes at every supper club, but a few start to get a buzz around them and those are the ones that get recipe requests. Unfortunately, we don’t always get a beautiful photo of each sought-after dish, so you’ll just have to imagine what this one looks like.

Sue Smith’s Quinoa Salad with Veggies

Ingredients
1/2 cup red quinoa
1 cup water

1 green pepper, diced
1 1/2 cup carrots, small dice
1 cup diced red cabbage
1/2 cup minced red onion
1/4 cup minced sun-dried tomatoes (from an oil-packed jar)

2 T red wine vinegar
4 tsp. dijon mustard
2 tsp. olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

1 cup almond/cashew feta cheese. Find a video/recipe for that here or use your own. Personally–this is Sue speaking–this one looks pretty good. You might try a little kalamata olive juice in place of the oil or the water.

Directions
Simmer the 1/2 cup quinoa in the water for about 15 minutes until water is fully absorbed.

Set aside to cool while you finish dicing veggies.

Whisk together red wine vinegar and next three ingredients. Combine almond/cashew feta with quinoa. Fold in veggies. Sprinkle with dressing and fold all together. Voila! P.S. In the montage below, you can see Sue’s empty dish!
