Fresh, Healthy Quinoa Salad

So it’s January 1, 2013.  Once again we start the “Let’s Get Healthy” plan for the year.   I found some organic black Quinoa in the cabinet and began to assemble a healthy salad.  After cooking the quinoa, a product of Peru, I added some chopped raw red peppers, carrots, cilantro, walnuts and dried cranberries.  Then, I dressed it with an emulsified mixture of fresh lemon juice, minced garlic, flaxseed oil and salt & pepper.  It was delicious and even better after being refrigerated for the day.

So, day “one” of the Healthy new year is off to a good start!

Wishing you all a healthy, Happy New Year.   JJ
