Easy Lentil and Quinoa Salad
“This complete and nutritious salad is perfect to put into tupperware and eat it during lunch anywhere you're at.”
If you don't have cooked quinoa, start by preparing some. The first step is to rinse the quinoa. We cooked it in the microwave. For this, we placed it in a special recipient that is microwave-safe. We added about 8 ounces of water and a pinch of salt. We placed a lid on top and cooked for 12 minutes at 800W. Once ready, we let it stand for several minutes before removing the lid. Let it cool.
Serve the quinoa in a bowl and add the cooked and previously drained lentils.
Wash and dice the cucumber and cherry tomatoes into small cubes. Add to the salad.
Finely chop the cilantro and onion and add to the bowl.
Drizzle some oil, lemon, and salt on the salad, mix, and presto!
