If you only make quinoa one way this Summer then this should be it.
Miles and I just got back from a few weeks in Nicaragua. We surfed. We napped in hammocks. We ate rice and beans. We had such a rad time.
While we were gone I did some brainstorming for SEA SALT, so get ready for some new recipes that I promise will make your summer both delicious and relaxing.
This was one of those recipes that I made up on the fly, without having a concept of what I wanted to make before I started. Somehow those recipes always turn out to be the best.
I made this salad for the first time last summer while Miles was off surfing in Sri Lanka with his bros, and it was so good I literally ate it every meal. The first time I made it I was inspired by another recipe I had come across, but since then I have made this so many times that I have altered it to become my own. The flavors get even better when it sits for a day or two, and it is a perfect cold salad packed with protein, veggies and the most delicious dressing of all time.
So like many of you, Miles and I were feeling a little mmm.. how you say… heavy? after the holidays and we decided to do a little “cleanse” of our own. In my opinion that if you exercise daily, and eat right proportions that there’s no need to do diets or “cleanses”. If you’re happy and able to move around the way you want, then I think its all good (isn’t that what life is about? who has time to watch every little thing that goes in their mouth?).
Sometimes lettuce can just get in the way of what a salad is really all about… the cheese, the dressing and the croutons. Just kidding! THE VEGGIES! I love a big bowl of grated carrots (so easy to eat vs big chunks), cucumber, tomatoes and onion. Who needs that pesky lettuce!
