Quinoa Salad with Chickpeas, Tomatoes and Squash


Here's a good quinoa dish that I've added to my roster of summer salads. I made this back in June for a party whose invitation jokingly requested no healthy stuff like quinoa. So of course that's what we had to bring. The salad is composed of quinoa, chickpeas, chopped cherry tomatoes, a diced yellow summer squash, diced spring onion, and fresh parsley. It qualifies as vegan and gluten free. Despite their love of meat, everyone at the party ate it up.

  1. The squash isn't cooked? I've never tried it that way before.

  2. no, when you dice raw squash and throw it into a salad, it provides a nice texture.
