This recipe is a mix of about 3 or 4 quinoa salad recipes I found on the internet...the final result is quite a bit different from all of them - we pared down the ingredients and added the fruit of the orange which tastes really good with the quinoa and nuts. Great for summer although we eat it all year round. ~Margaret

Ingredients

  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed and cooked in 2 cups water for 10 min, then cooled.
  • Chopped raw cashews (handful)
  • Dried Cranberries (handful)
  • 1 orange, zested AND the fruit finally chopped
  • 1 lemon – zest and juiced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • Parsley/kale chopped for color (optional but a great way to sneak in more greens.

Instructions

  1. Mix the rest of the ingredients into cooled quinoa. Chill for 3 hours at least...allowing ingredients to meld.
