Another great quinoa recipe to add to the collection.  I like the combination of quinoa, basil and tomatoes. You could add more tomatoes to the recipe if you wanted but I thought that three were enough.

Chopping tomatoes and green onion.

Mixing up the dressing, chopped herbs, tomatoes and green onions.

The finished salad and ready for the table.


1 cup of quinoa
2 cups of water
3 small tomatoes, finely diced
2 green onions, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp fresh basil, sliced into thin strips
2 tbsp parsley, finely chopped
salt and pepper to taste


Place the quinoa and water into a saucepan.  Bring to a boil and then simmer for 20 minutes or until cooked.  Cool and fluff with a fork.

      In a bowl mix the other ingredients together.  Add the quinoa and combine.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.  Serves 4.
