Author Notes: I wanted a recipe that would be a great complimentary recipe or that with a few additions could be a stand alone dish! Add Nutritional yeast and kale for a great twist with added protein.
You could also use different colored Quinoas

Serves: 8 - 10


  • 1 cup Rinsed Quinoa
  • 1/2 cup Black Eyed Peas
  • 1/2 cup Diced Tomato
  • 1/2 cup Diced Cucumber
  • 1/2 cup Fresh Corn
  1. Cook the quinoa over a slow heat for approximately 20 minutes or until fluffy.
  2. Dice your tomatoes, cucumber, and cut the corn off the cobb. (Ensure your vegetables are well rinsed - the corn can be used raw if nice and sweet)
  3. Rinse the quinoa in cold water once cooked to chill, then combine all ingredients.


  • 1/8 cup Olive oil
  • 1/8 cup Lime Juice
  • 1 teaspoon Honey
  • 1 teaspoon Mrs Dash Seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon Spicy Mustard
  1. Combine all ingredients and whisk until smooth.
  2. Dress the salad with the dressing - best to chill for an hour before serving. Enjoy.
