I tweaked one of my all time favorite middle eastern salads. Fresh and lively and allows me to enjoy these great flavors without Couscous!
2 cups Parsley chopped (1 lg bunch)
3/4 cup chopped cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1/3 long english cuc, diced
1 cup Quinoa (for a Paleo/Keto version try it with Hemp Hearts!)
Juice of one lemon (I used Meyer Lemon) + a little more, Fresh lemon juice using Epicure's Citrus Press
1/4 cup Olive Oil
Epicure Pepper (to taste)
Combine all. Devour.
Keeps in the fridge a couple days. A big bowl is gone in one day in our house.
Visit my GFRR post for more details on how to make balanced meals.
Eating 1/4 of this portion is HALF a GFRR Grain Portion and 1 Veg Portion...
To Perfectly Balance for Good Food Real Results add:
a portion of protein (ie, 1 cup chick peas or 1/2 c of chicken)
a portion of grain/starch (1/2 c rice, corn, yam, etc)
Your Healthy Fat and your veggies are taken care of in this dish, although you can always add more veg as desired!
