This is a great salad because it's loaded with flavor, but low in fat and sodium. And it's so colorful!
I use a lot of grape and cherry tomatoes. If I can find the yellow tomatoes, I always include them, because they are so sweet.
I also use a lot of fresh basil. I really like the flavor that it adds.
So, here is my recipe for Tomato Quinoa Salad.
1 C cooked quinoa
2-3 C tomatoes, chopped into smallish pieces
Fresh basil to taste (I use a lot, probably about a cup)
2 cans of garbanzo beans, drained (I use the no added salt variety)
1/2 C feta cheese
1/2 C lemon and/or lime juice
Once everything is chopped up, just mix it together.
There you have it, a delicious salad that has protein, veggies and great summer flavor! Bon appetit!
