Pedal Bites Salad Ingredients

½ cup of red beans, cooked
1 Beetroot, cooked and cut into wedges
Handful of spinach leaf

1. Presuming that you’ve bought ready-to-eat quinoa, and your beans are cooked already – you can skip this part. If not then you'll need to cook the quinoa.
2. To do so: boil a small pot of salted water, and then add in the quinoa. Cook for 8 minutes and then drain and run under cold water.
3. Chop the beetroot up into wedges, along with the feta cheese.
4. Quickly wash and drain the spinach before adding to the bowl. Followed by the beetroot, feta and quinoa.
5. Mix the tuna with the lemon juice, salt and pepper and taste – seasoning according to your taste.
6. Add in the red beans and toss all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and your ready to serve. Enjoy!
