Delicious Simple Recipe for Your Memorial Day Barby

Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:

Making plans for a Memorial Day Weekend barbecue?  Here is a simple, easy recipe that can be paired with just about anything on the grill – or served to your vegetarian friends as well.

Here’s wishing you a relaxing, safe and sane holiday weekend!

Quinoa and Snap Pea Salad (yields six one cup servings)


2 cups water

1 cup quinoa

2 cups fresh snap peas, trimmed and cut diagonally into quarters

1 1/2 cups button mushrooms, cut into quarters or more if they are large

1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion, cut into ½ inch lengths

1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill

1/3 cup white balsamic vinegar or white wine vinegar

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil or flaxseed oil

1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon pure maple syrup

Combine water and quinoa in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook for 15 minutes. Fluff with a fork and set aside to cool completely. Chill if a cold salad is desired.

Combine peas, mushrooms, onion and dill in a medium bowl. Whisk vinegar, oil, lemon zest, lemon juice and maple syrup in a small bowl. Stir the dressing into the cooled quinoa. Add the quinoa to the vegetable mixture, toss and serve. Enjoy!
