1 cup Quinoa
Ĺ cup Black Olives
8 Sundried Tomatoes (marinate those in olive oil)
1 Tomato (diced to very small cubes)
2 tablespoons of Fresh chopped Basil
2 Red Peppers (diced to very small cubes)
4 tablespoons Olive Oil
2 tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar
1 teaspoon crushed Garlic
2 tablespoons Lemon Juice
Salt and Black Pepper to taste
1/2 bunch Parsley (finely chopped)
Cook the quinoa in a pot covered with two glasses of water and a little salt. Bring to a boil and simmer for 20 minutes. After cooking, place a towel between the lid and the pot for about 10 minutes. Set aside to cool down for about 15 min in a separate dish.
Pit the olives and chop roughly. Chop the dried tomatoes finely. Place all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix. season with salt and pepper (careful with the salt, the olives pretty much take care of that). Cool and serve cold.
