Quinoa and split peas make a wonderful combination, chewy quinoa and the soft peas tossed with sautéed onions, garlic, cilantro, and jalapeno. A pinch of turmeric gives the salad a vibrant yellowish tinge. Freshly squeezed lemon juice and salt round off the salad. Serve warm or at room temperature.
I have no particular measurements here, just half a cup of cooked quinoa, half a cup of cooked split peas, a little diced onion, a clove of garlic – minced, and a few sprigs of fresh cilantro.
