A simple side dish, quinoa salad is great to take on a picnic.  Add cooked chicken and have a one dish meal. Red quinoa has a nuttier flavor than regular and stands up to the hearty flavors of the lamb and eggplant.

1 celery stalk, cut into ¼ inch pieces

4 scallions, finely chopped

6 radishes, coarsely chopped

1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 tablespoon limejuice

4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

¼ teaspoon salt

pepper to taste



Equipment: medium saucepan, large mixing bowl, small bowl
