Quinoa Salad With Sugar Snap Peas


When you search for recipes for quinoa, you'll find a lot of salad recipes available. I found this recipe for Quinoa Salad With Sugar Snap Peas in my endless stack of recipes torn from magazines.

I come home for lunch almost every day and am always looking for something new to eat. This is a great salad for a summer picnic or family reuinion. It's easy to put together and won't spoil in the heat. The sugar snap peas and the chives add a nice color and crunch to the quinoa. I substituted sunflower seeds for the pumpkin seeds. This salad has lots of possiblities, different nuts or veggies. I think I will try it with asaparagus next time.

I am linking this to Foodie Friday at Designs by Gollum.

  2. This is a great meal for lunch-it's fresh, healthy and delicious. Awesome.

    btw, thanks for your comment about my fresh eggs. i really do feel lucky to get my hands on them. I have learned over the last few years, that most chicken breeds do not lay white eggs-only commercial ones.

    Take care.

  7. This looks great! I've been wanting to try and my husband loves sugar snap peas, so this may be our ticket.

    The Thai place that they ate at was in South Omaha - Laos Thai Market. He said they had some kind of seafood-cumin soup, chicken pad thai, and spring rolls while they were there.
