Red Quinoa and Pistachios with Dijon Vinaigrette

 Sorry for the terrible cellphone pic!! :(

This is awesome and super simple!!!

You'll need:

1 cup red quinoa (cooked according to package directions)**in the cooking water I added 1 tsp. turmeric
1/2 cup pan-toasted pistachos, chopped coarsely
1 large garlic clove, minced
1 tsp. dijon mustard
3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp. red wine vinegar
salt to taste

Make the vinaigrette by whisking together the dijon mustard, garlic, salt, oil and vinegar; taste to see if you need more vinegar/oil.  I like a lot of vinegar so I'm heavy-handed with that and usually add a little more.  Put the cooked quinoa in a bowl and fluff with a fork, add in the vinaigrette and mix well.  Season with salt if needed; mix in pistachios.  Enjoy!
