Serves 6

3/4 cup dry quinoa, rinsed
1 1/2 cups low sodium vegetable stock
1/2 cucumber, spiralized or diced
1/2 yellow zucchini, spiralized or diced
1/4 cup red onion, diced
1/4 cup raisins
Bunch of fresh dill, chopped
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp sugar
S&P to taste

Prepare your quinoa.  Add vegetable stock to a medium saucepan, bring to a boil.  Add quinoa, reduce heat and simmer for about 15 minutes.  Once cooked, set aside to cool.

Spiralize your cucumber and zucchini.  If you don’t have a spiralizer, that’s ok, just dice it up!  Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well to combine.  Refrigerate for at least an hour or overnight. Serve over a bed of greens or as is!

      Thanks Ann Marie! Dill is so underrated. I definitely don’t use it enough, but that will change 🙂
