|Pita Bread, Spinach & Garlic Hummus, and Quinoa & Red Bean Salad|
This is pretty much the perfect meal for a warm summer's day, and required minimal cooking. All I had to do was simmer some quinoa on low heat for 25 minutes, chop the veggies, and stir everything together.
The salad contained:
1 diced tomato
1 diced yellow squash
4 green onions
2 napa cabbage leaves, finely sliced
1/2 cup of rinsed red beans
1/2 cup corn
Combine all of these ingredients with one cup of cooked quinoa and then toss with 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar and half a cup of Salsa Verde. I'm really glad I decided not to toss out that salsa the other day--a hint of those tangy flavors worked really well with this salad. You could always buy a jar of salsa if you don't have any tomatillos (or patience) to make it yourself.
