This is my own recipe. Â It has a lovely refreshing taste. Â Of course you can enjoy it anytime of the year! Â Quinoa is gluten free, a good source of protein, high in magnesium and iron and contains essential amino acids.

2 tomatoes (I use roma)

1/2 tsp salt
Cool the quinoa under cold running water. Â Drain and place in bowl. Â Add chopped olives, parsely and tomatoes. Â Mix gently. Â Place dressing ingredients in a container and shake until well combined. Â Add the dressing just before serving the salad, mixing it through thoroughly.
