Quick Quinoa salad with recipe

Apologies for the recent lack of posts, but there's been little new and exciting cooked in the cruelty free kitchen of late, just the same old tried and trusted favourites you've already seen posted previously, since I've been rather busy with overtime lately.

But I've finally managed to come up with something I haven't already posted, a quick quinoa salad, made using about a cup's worth of leftover quinoa from a previous dish. Just add a tablespoon of olive oil, a teaspoon of cider vinegar(or lemon juice if you prefer a milder flavour), a few dashes of salt and black pepper, parsley to taste(either fresh or dried will do), a sliced onion(I've used a red onion but most onions will do, and spring onions are particularly nice and mild), plus optionally, veggies like sliced bell peppers or celery etc, and nuts or seeds. Leave in the fridge for up to a couple of days.

PS, you don't have to use quinoa either, other grains will work to, ie brown rice, millet, cous cous etc...
