salmon + quinoa salad

I love this salad.  It's crammed with all sorts of wicked healthy stuff, and it tastes!  Oh, and by the way, it's pronounced "KEEN-wha."  Best of all, this recipe is free of allergens and fermented soy products, so it's safe for anti-candida diets!

  • Lettuce (Romaine is the best)
  • 1 small packet of salmon
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Tri-color quinoa
  • Red bell pepper
  • Onion
  • Liquid aminos (I use Bragg's)
  • EVOO or grapeseed oil
Just toast a handful of quinoa over medium heat in a dry non-stick skillet while you wash and dry your lettuce.  I recommend covering it with a lid, since the quinoa will pop, kind of like popcorn!  Chop up onion and red pepper to your liking and add that to the pan with the package of salmon.  Squirt in some liquid aminos.  Cook until the onions are transparent and the salmon caramelizes a bit.  When you're all set, pour it over a bed of lettuce, drizzle on some oil and maybe a little more aminos, and enjoy!  Perfect for a summer day, or like any other day really.
