Quinoa Salad

It's Sunday and time to get together with family for an afternoon get together. This is a great easy summer dish and to be able to use what ever veggies you picked up at the local farmers market, grocery store, or your own garden. These are the items I started with:

1 cup of zucchini
1 cup of tomatoes
½ cup yellow peppers
½ cup green beans
½ cup of carrots
Teaspoon of pepper
3 tablespoons of olive oil
2 table spoons of Agave
Fresh parsley and basil
1 ½ cups of quinoa

Start by washing your veggies and cutting to the size you desire. Bring 2 1/2 cups of water to a boil add quinoa and bring heat down to low and cover pan with lid.
Simmer for 15 minutes, take off burner and cool. Once cool toss all ingredients in a bowl and refrigerate. When ready to serve give a quick toss to all ingredients.
