Lentil Quinoa Salad

My mother in law bought me some quinoa a while back.  I didn't really know what to do with it!:)  So I looked up recipes for it.  I came across quite a few, and this is the first one I tried.  It came out real nice, the flavors blending really well together.  I really liked it.:)  Enjoy!
-1/2 cup dry quinoa
-1/2 cup dry lentils
-3 green onions, chopped
-1 tsp Dijon mustard
-2 Tbs red wine vinegar
-1/4 cup vegetable oil
-1/4 tsp garlic powder
-zest from 1 lime
-salt and pepper, to taste
Cook quinoa according to package directions. 
Cook lentils according o package directions.  Drain and set aside.
Mix together mustard, vinegar, oil, garlic powder and zest.  Mix until well blended.
In a large bowl, mix cooked, quinoa, cooked lentils and green onions.  Pour dressing over.  Toss to coat and serve.  Enjoy!

Great idea with having a plan of attack for each day as far as cleaning goes! I'll put it in practice! :) Iar salata de quinoa si lentils, o sa o incerc. Am cumparat quinoa stiind ca este f. sanatoasa, am incercat sa o gatesc plain si nu ne-a placut. Am sa incerc salata asta, suna bine!!! Sosul sigur ii da un gust bun! Te pup!!!
