Sick of Salad? Try This Instead!

So I've really been trying to spice up my meal plan recently.  Not because I don't love salads for lunch because I actually really do, but I know that there are times I get stuck in a routine, and I hate when I get bored.  Boredom with my meal plans usually lead to digressing from my plans and eating things that really don't agree with me or my hips.

Usually I have a salad for lunch with some chicken and a touch of balsalmic/ EVOO dressing.  But this week, I just didn't want it! 

So I decided to spice uup my salad with this little ditty.  Please note, my measurements are close guesses.  I am like my grandmother- no measurements just guesses.

1 cup quinoa

1 TBL of parsley
1 TBL dill
lemon juice

Let cool.
Add remaining ingredients and refrigerate for at least one hour.
