Mexican Quinoa Salad w/Lime Cumin Dressing

I thrMexQuinoaSalad1ew this together recently for dinner when it was over 100 degrees outside.  Didn’t feel like a hot meal, and definitely didn’t feel like turning on the oven or spending a lot of time at the stove.  The only cooking required is for the quinoa and that’s super quick, especially if you have a pressure cooker in which it quinoa takes 5 minutes at high pressure.

This is a great dish to share at a potluck, picnic, or for this coming weekend, a Labor Day BBQ.  It holds up well in the fridge for a few days; the sauce/dressing soaks in quite a bit but the flavor is still there.  Delicious on its own or on a bed of lettuce.

Recipe Notes

I'm one of those people to whom cilantro tastes like soap.  Therefore, you will never see any of my recipes calling for cilantro.  That said, I'm sure cilantro lovers would enjoy it in this dish...so knock yourself out if that's your thing.  I left the amount blank as I have no idea how much a cilantro-lover would use.
