Quinoa ....

Our cafeteria's at work always feature a different food each week
and the chef's all come up with recipes to highlight whatever the
featured food is
One week it was asparagus and the chef in our cafeteria made
a quinoa salad that was wonderful
he gave us the recipe but did not give measuring amounts but
it's so simple, you can just wing it
I used a cup of quinoa, cooked and drained
I roasted the asparagus in the oven with olive oil drizzled all over
waited for it to cool and then sliced it into bite size pieces
mix with the cooled quinoa, add raisins, walnuts and sliced almonds
add salt and pepper
that's dressing at all
the oil from the asparagus keeps it all moist
you just know this salad is so healthy.......and good!!
