I’m a sucker for potatoes, and I especially adore potato salad. This is the one I’m really loving lately…

Potato & Quinoa Salad
6-8 potatoes*
1/2 C quinoa*
2 tomatoes*
2-3 cloves minced garlic*
1 handful of minced parsley*
1/2 C diced cucumber*
1 Tbsp dill*
1 glug olive* oil
1 lemon*
salt and pepper* to taste
* = Organic

Cut potatoes into 2″ chunks (mouthful-size). Boil potato chunks until fork-tender. Drain and put into a large bowl. Set aside. Cook quinoa (1/2 C quinoa and 1/2 C water; bring to a boil; reduce heat to minimum; cover for 10 minutes). Add cooked quinoa to bowl. Dice tomatoes, and add them to the bowl. Mix in garlic, parsley, cucumber, dill and olive oil to the bowl, too. Roll the lemon firmly between your hand and the counter. Cut the lemon in half over the bowl, and squeeze the juice from both halves over your fingers into the bowl. Add salt and pepper. Stir it all together. Enjoy!

    I don’t have quinoa seeds but I do have amaranth. They’d be okay, wouldn’t they? I had them lined up for pancakes. I have been dying to use them and this looks like the perfect recipe to have a go. This is tomorrow night’s salad. Thank you. :)
