Quinoa Veggie Salad

I found this recipe in a book I was cataloging on Thursday and decided to make it this weekend. It was wonderful. I shared it with my roomate who also loved it and took the picture. It makes 3 servings (for Cameron it would have been 1 serving) and has only 180 calories per serving, 3.5 grams of fat, and 7 grams of protein.

Quinoa Veggie Salad

3/4 c. uncooked quinoa
1 1/2 water
1 c. torn arugula
1/4 c. chopped roasted red bell peppers (from a jar)
1/4 c. halved red cherry tomatoes
1/4 c. chopped marinated artichokes
1 T. marinade from artichoke jar
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper

Cook Quinoa in water according to directions (be sure to rinse first). When the quinoa is cooked and cooled, mix with the remaining ingredients. Cover and refrigerate.
