Quinoa Split Pea Salad

26 Dec

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.
