  • 1 cup quinoa

  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  1. Rinse the quinoa thoroughly under cold water.
  2. In a medium saucepan, bring 2 cups of water to a boil.

  6. Place the lettuce in a large mixing bowl.
  7. In a small bowl, combine the sugar, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Whisk until the sugar is dissolved and the dressing is well combined.
  8. Once the quinoa has cooled, add it to the bowl with the chopped lettuce.
  9. Pour the dressing over the quinoa and lettuce mixture.
  10. Toss everything together until the quinoa and lettuce are evenly coated with the dressing.
  11. Divide the salad into 4 portions.
