Sweet and Savory Easy Quinoa Salad



My kids thought this was the best quinoa they have ever tasted.  I think that is very funny because I make quinoa at least one time per week and this was the easiest of any of the recipes.  This is a wonderful recipe if you have leftover vegetables from a veggie tray.  Feel free to add any vegetables you have around.  You can also replace the raisins with other dried fruit.  I think dried cranberries or cherries would be delicious.

Serves 12

4 cup cooked quinoa
1 cup fresh herbs, chopped (we used parsley, basil, dill, thyme, oregano)
1 red pepper, chopped
1 cup shredded carrots, chopped
1/2 cup red onion, chopped
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup GF Italian salad dressing

Place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix together.  Add more salad dressing if you need more flavor.  You could also add pinenuts or slivered almonds for a nice touch.
