I have a different salad in a jar for this week. You can read my original post here.
I have cooked up some Quinoa (keen-wah)grains for my salad. Quinoa is an ancient grain that is a complete protein and has a very low glycemic rate. It is very good for us and curbs your hunger for a long time.
It doesn’t have a lot of flavor so you need to jazz it up a little with your favorite herbs, spices etc. I toasted mine in a tiny bit of butter first then cooked it with garlic and a dash of salt. This week I used grapes and strawberries as well. I love fruit with feta so that is the white you see in the jar. My usual dressing is EVOO and balsamic vinegar.
