What a great salad, it’s fresh and tasty but it is also what I call light comfort food. As a combination, the chick peas and the fibre of the quinoa have that satisfying feeling. The recipe calls for combining the quinoa the chickpeas, tomatoes and black olives. Then add a wonderfully aromatic dressing and serve sprinkled with mint. Excellent in taste; quick and easy to prepare.
For the quinoa salad, first cook the quinoas according to the instructions on the package. Then let it cool down.
In the meantime, mix all the ingredients for the dressing in a bowl and season with salt and pepper.
Then add the cooled quinoas, chickpeas, tomatoes and olives to the dressing, mix well and season to taste again.
Serve the quinoa salad sprinkled with mint.
