Good Eats!

6 Jun

I fixed a salad for supper today and it was met with great applause from The Squire. It goes well with just about any main dish, fish or fowl. Quick and easy, and I don’t think there’s anything in it you don’t have at home. If you don’t have what it calls for, substitute!

Whisk together:

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper

2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar (I didn’t have any, so I used a raspberry balsamic, but I’ll bet a malt vinegar would do as well)

1 cup chopped roasted red bell peppers, rinsed (I can’t think of a substitute for this one)

1 clove of garlic, finely chopped

1/4 cup chopped pistachios

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley or cilantro

Combine with:

2 cups cooked quinoa (I used a packet of Aldi’s 90 second Quinoa and Brown Rice)

This is supposed to serve four, but I was lucky to have any left at all. It is good hot or cold, and is absolutely delicious!
