This salad is filled with fiber and healthy fat. Feel free to use any whole grain in place of quinoa to mix it up while still maintaining the heart benefits. You can also substitute other unsalted nuts or dried fruits.
- In small pot over medium-high heat, bring quinoa and water to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low, cover, and simmer until liquid is completely absorbed, 10 to 20 minutes. Remove pot from heat, keeping it covered, and let stand 5 minutes. Uncover and fluff quinoa with a fork.
- Steam or microwave frozen vegetables according to package directions.
- Combine quinoa, vegetables, and remaining ingredients in large bowl and serve.
