We are officially in the first month of autumn but summer is having its last hurrah and it's hot! Itís definitely too hot to slave over a hot stove so here is a light and refreshing salad which is quick and easy to make. Better yet, itís a great accompaniment to any BBQ meat skewer or tinned tuna.
Preparation time: 30 Minutes Serves: 3-4 People
1 cup corn kernels
2 whole beets (sliced or cubed)
1 orange (peeled and cubed)
1 cup quinoa (cook as per directions on packet)
3 cups spinach (washed)
1 carrot (julienne)
5 Roma or cherry tomatoes (quartered)
1 boiled egg (sliced)
2 table spoons of garlic infused olive oil (makes any salad delicious)
Toss your salad together, add the dressing, some salt and pepper to taste and voila! For a bit of crunch I like to add a few flakes of roasted almond.
Enjoy either on its own or add some tinned tuna or BBQ skewers for a more substantial meal.
