    I just made a delicious quinoa salad with a recipe I adapted. This is great for South Beach and low GI, but the salad would be free on SW green too I think, you'd just need to adapt the dressing.

    Salad
    100g quinoa
    Can chickpeas
    Red pepper
    4 spring onions
    Grated carrot

    Dressing
    1 tsp tahini
    1 tsp lemon juice
    1 tsp olive oil
    1 tsp mustard
    2 tsp balsamic vinegar
    drop agave syrup
    crushed garlic clove

    Cook the quinoa and stir it into the other salad ingredients. Mix together the dressing ingredients, then pour over salad.

    This makes enough for 2 generous lunches and is very yummy!
