• 1 medium zucchini, cut into 1 inch chunks
• 1 medium summer squash
• 1 cup grape tomatoes, cut in half
• 1 red onion, cut into chunks
• 1 bell pepper, chopped
• 1 tbsp. olive oil
• 1/2 tsp. salt
• 1/4 tsp. pepper
• 2 cups cooked and cooled quinoa (cook in chicken stock for more flavor)
• 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar
• 4 tbsp. fresh lime juice
• 1 garlic clove
• 1/2 tsp. sugar
• 1/2 tsp. salt
• 4 tbsp. olive oil
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Toss vegetables with 1 tsbp. olive oil, salt, and pepper. Pour onto a jelly roll pan or baking sheet with a rim. Roast for 10-15 minutes, or until veggies are soft and lightly browned. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
2. In a large bowl combine roasted veggies with quinoa, and shredded cheddar. Set aside.
3. In the bowl of a food processor, combine lime juice, garlic clove, sugar, salt, and olive oil. Pulse in food processor until all ingredients are processed. You may need to add a bit more lime juice to get vinaigrette to a pourable consistency. Pour vinaigrette over quinoa salad and toss to coat. Serve room temperature or cold.

*Occasionally, I get sent a product for free to review, which is done at the company’s own peril. Sometimes I like their product, but sometimes I will give it a big thumbs down. Sometimes I use affiliate links, which will be clearly marked. I make a small pittance of a commission when you use said links to purchase the item in question. While I enjoy making YouTube videos and interacting with the viewers, to justify the insane amount of hours I spend planning, filming, editing, uploading, researching, answering comments on YT, answering comments on FB, responding to tweets and emails, I need to make a small bit of money. Otherwise, I’m not someone with a part-time job, I’m an obsessive compulsive beauty/computer freak who has become a bit of a shut-in.
