Easy Grain Salad

This looks like the fancy tarts sold in bakeries and its SO EASY!!!

1/2 sweet onion (walla wall or vidalia), chopped
2 zucchini squash, chopped
2 red bell pepper, chopped
1 c quinoa

1/3 c lemon juice
1/4 c olive oil
olive oil for sauteeing
salt and pepper to taste

Bring 2 cups of water to boil, reduce to simmer, dump in quinoa, cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Dump in a big bowl when done.

While quinoa is cooking, saute peppers, squash, onion in a little olive oil till crisp tender. IF you like garlic then you can mince some and cook along with veggies. Dump in bowl with quinoa. Add lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper to taste. Eat hot or cold.
