Step 1: Ingredients and Prep

Boil 1 cup of rinsed quinoa in 2 cup of salted water until al dente ( to the bite).

I like to close the lid and allow it to cool and absorb any water that's left.

Flake with a fork.

In a bowl add 1 cup halved grape tomatoes

3/4 cup chopped flat leaf parsley

1 cup bite size Bocconcini

1/4 cup EVOO

4 tbsp. white balsamic vinegar

1/2 tsp each salt and black pepper

1 tsp pureed garlic

Toss to mix.

Can be served immediately or refrigerated.
