Warm Chicken + Quinona Salad

My parents are coming over tomorrow to go house-hunting with Dan and me! We have a couple that we like, but we’re not sure about them 100%. So…we’re bringing in the big guns. :)

Tonight, I’m picking up around the apartment and trying to make things look presentable for them. Time is short, so I leave you with some pictures from what is quickly becoming one of my favorite meals – Warm Shrimp + Quinoa Salad. Well, we didn’t use shrimp so I guess did a play on one of my new faves – Warm Chicken + Quinoa Salad. MMMMMmmmmm…..

I made some substitutions to the recipe I found at the Whole Foods web site (click for recipe):

  • subbed grilled chicken (cooked in electric griller) for the shrimp
  • subbed tomato paste for sun-dried tomatoes
  • subbed chicken broth for the wine
  • left out the lemon juice and zest
  • subbed yellow onion for red
  • left out green onions and parsley
  • subbed toasted pine nuts for cashews

Wow, I made a lot of changes to the original recipe!

This is good stuff, though! If you’ve never tried quinoa, I highly suggest you give it a go! I love it and it’s very good for you!
