Delicious Wheat/Gluten-Free Quinoa Salad with Lime, Cilantro and Curry.

I made this delicious gluten-free quinoa salad for Easter dinner to have with my turkey when everyone else was having stuffing.  I found the recipe online at allrecipes.com   It is easy to make ahead of time and makes a good lunch the next day too!  If you don’t like some of the ingredients, take them out or switch them up, but be sure to leave the quinoa, lime, curry powder and cilantro for the unique flavor…

Ingredients for six servings:

1.5 cups water

1 cup uncooked quinoa

1/4 cup chopped red pepper

1/4 cup chopped yellow pepper

1.5 tsp curry powder

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

1 lime, juiced (or equivalent amount of bottled juice)

1/4 cup toasted sliced almonds

1/2 cup minced carrots

1/2 cup dried cranberries

Cook the quinoa: bring the water to a boil in a saucepan, pour in quinoa.  If you don’t have fresh cilantro, you could add the paste type (found in most produce sections) to the water with the quinoa at his point.  Cover and simmer 15 to 20 minutes, until water is absorbed.   Refrigerate the quinoa in a bowl to chill it.  Stir the remaining ingredients into chilled quinoa and serve…
