Quinoa Salad on the Go

I've never had quinoa or at least I don't think I have, but this salad looks interesting.

  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 1½ cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • 2 tbsp. Cilantro or Lime Vinaigrette preferred dressing
  • ¼ cup red pepper, chopped using Chop ’N Prep Chef
  • ¼ cup green pepper, chopped using Chop ’N Prep Chef
  • ½ cup black beans canned, drained
  • 2 cups spinach

Combine quinoa, vegetable broth and orange juice in Microwave Rice Maker. 
Replace cover and microwave on high power 15–18 minutes. 
Fluff with a fork and chill in refrigerator.

Layer (bottom to top): 
  • dressing
  • peppers
  • black beans 
  • ½ cup chilled quinoa 
  • spinach
Securely seal container. 
Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.

When ready to serve, shake Quick Shake® Container until all ingredients are combined. 

Pour into bowl and serve.
You will only be using 1/4 of the prepared Quinoa, so you can make more of these for lunch/dinner or use the quinoa for another recipe.
