  • 1 cup quinoa, uncooked
  • 1 cup green beans
  • 1/2 medium squash, summer
  • 2 medium apple
  • 1 cup artichoke hearts, jarred
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar, balsamic
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin, ground
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper, ground


  • Cook quinoa according to the package directions and allow to cool to room temperature.
  • Boil a pot of water; cut beans into smaller pieces and allow to boil for 1-2 minutes.  Drain the beans and place into ice water; drain and set aside.  This enables you to soften the beans yet keep them crisp.
  • Quarter and thinly slice squash; dice apples (you will need one cup), and quarter artichokes. Add this all to a bowl with the beans, quinoa, and remaining ingredients.  Toss to coat.
