    quinoa salad
    from How To Cook Everything Vegetarian

    2 1/2 cups cooked quinoa or other small-kernel grain or 1 cup raw
    1 large or 2 medium (about 1 pound) sweet potatoes
    Salt
    1 red bell pepper, cored, seeded and diced
    1/4 cup minced red onion or shallot
    Freshly ground black pepper
    1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (I cut this in half)
    2 tablespoons balsamic, sherry or red wine vinegar
    1/4 cup minced fresh chives or parsley leaves

    Directions:

    If you haven’t already, cook the quinoa or other grain according to package directions.  Drain in a strainer and rinse.  Meanwhile, peel the sweet potato and dice it into 1/2-inch or smaller pieces.  Cook it in boiling water to cover until tender, about 15 minutes; drain well.

    Toss together the quinoa, potato, bell pepper, and onion; sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Whisk the oil and vinegar together and toss the salad with about half of this mixture; add all or some of the rest to taste.  Taste and adjust the seasoning, garnish with the chives (or parsley) and serve.
