Quinoa Salad Recipe

I just made this salad the other day for a barbeque. Quinoa is a great grain (it is actually a seed, but used like a grain) to make a summer salad with. It is high in protein, calcium iron, and fiber.

Salad:
1 cup quinoa, cooked according to package directions
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1 cucumber or zucchini, diced
1 yellow pepper, chopped
½ bunch cilantro, chopped
1 head broccoli, chopped
½ head cauliflower, chopped

Dressing:
1/4 cup olive oil
1/8 cup apple cider vinegar
2 tsp Dijon mustard
pepper to taste

Toss and enjoy!
