Nutrition for Runners: Quinoa Salad

 With race day coming up in a few weeks I am trying to get back to regularly planning out meals in advance. Tonight I was finally organized again to have a new recipe to post. This one is something my wife came up with at the last minute to go with salmon I was cooking on the bbq. 
To make this salad cook some quinoa as per instructions on the package. That should take you about 12-15 minutes. 

Once the quinoa is ready add in 2tbsp of sweet mustard, 1 tbsp of honey, 2-3 tbsp of olive oil and 2 cloves of garlic finely minced. We then mixed in some cherry tomatoes and chopped cucumber.
As you can see this is a very easy salad to make to go along with your main dish. The mustard and honey serve to give the quinoa a sweet taste so if you have kids they should like it too.
