My parents came from Israel to visit us for few weeks and we celebrate at the trailer with a special dinner. We had tricolour quinoa and grilled asparagus salad, grilled pepper, beet and beans salad, chicken and vegetables kebobs with roasted vegetables, ice cream with fresh berries and of course plenty of German Deinhard Riesling. Recipes to follow in a few days.
Very easy to make and extremely tasty, the quinoa salad is one of my lovely wife favorite. This time I used organic tricolor Royal quinoa, mixed greens, some peppers (use any color you want), avocado, celery, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, fresh basil, garlic&hot pepper infused olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette. I think the most important ingredients in a salad are the oil and the vinegar. You have to use a good balsamic vinaigrette and a quality virgin oil. I know, they are expensive, but the difference they make in a salad is huge.
