2 cups cooked quinoa
1 large red bell pepper, diced
1 English cucumber, diced
2 field tomatoes, diced
1/2 red onion, diced
1 can chick peas, drained & rinsed
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 lemon, juiced
1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley, chopped
Sea Salt & black pepper to taste
Add 2 raw chopped garlic cloves if desired
Sometimes I added chopped mint. It makes for a really fresh tasting salad! Try it!! 🌱

This recipe is great when served chilled, but I personally like it when I add the warm quinoa to the veggies and serve right away!
