Mediterranean Quinoa Salad 2.1

Have you tried quinoa? I eat it rather often since it’s gluten free. It’s perfect for breakfast and great in many other recipes plus my family actually likes it. I made this Mediterranean Quinoa salad the other day and everyone loved it so I’m sharing it with you.

Ingredients:
1 cup uncooked quinoa
2 cups chicken broth
1 tablespoon roasted garlic spread
1/2 cup chopped drained roasted red bell peppers
1/2 cup cubed provolone cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves
2 tablespoons fat free Italian dressing

Rinse quinoa under cold water. Drain well.

In saucepan, heat quinoa, broth and roasted garlic to boiling, reduce heat. Cover and simmer 15-20 minutes or until quinoa is tender. Drain any remaining liquid. Cool completely.

While quinoa is cooling, mix red bell peppers, provolone cheese, fresh basil and dressing.
