Prep time: 20 min
½ cup black quinoa (uncooked)
1 raw zucchini
1 can of mixed beans (well drained and washed)
8 cherry tomatoes
1 hand full of fresh parsley and 1 hand full of fresh mint
1 avocado, sliced
Juice of 1 lemon
3-4 big spoons of olive oil (and some vinegar if you like)
Sea salt and pepper
- Bring water to boil and boil the quinoa for 10 min. Note: black quinoa will always be a bit more “crunchy” compared to its white counter part.
- Wash and chop all ingredients.
- Prepare the dressing: mix olive oil, fresh lemon juice salt and pepper and season to your liking. Add fresh herbs of your choice. We recommend fresh parsley and mint.
- Mix it together, season to your taste and enjoy!
TIP: if you like to eat this salad as a non-vegetarian version, simply pan fry or grill some good quality chicken and serve it on top of the salad.
