This is a wonderful, refreshing salad - one of my favorites!

  • 1 c. basil, fresh, organic
  • 2 tbs. lemon juice, pure, organic
  • 2 tbs. olive oil, extra virgin, unrefined and unfiltered, organic
  • 4 clove garlic, fresh, organic
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt, unrefined and pure
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper, ground, organic
  • 2 c. quinoa, white, organic
  • 15 oz. kidney beans, canned, organic
  • 1 c. bell pepper, yellow, fresh, organic
  • 1/2 c. tomatoes, red, fresh, organic

Place basil in a food processor. Add lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper. Cover and process until nearly smooth, stopping to scrape down side as needed. Set aside. In a medium bowl, stir together cooked quinoa, the beans, sweet pepper, tomato, and green onions. Add basil mixture; stir to coat. Makes 6 servings.
