good recipe often takes a circuitous journey.
My cousin’s wife got this recipe from a potluck at her son’s school. And since I’ve made it for a few potlucks, it’s gone on to even more friends and relations.
And then my friend Elaine reminds me that you should use the 'normal' colored quinoa because the red quinoa doesn't give you enough visual contrast.
The best part about it is that when you’re in a rush, the only prep that is required is cutting the cucumber. If you have a rice cooker, a knife and a can opener, quinoa salad is a done deal.
