Andrea’s Quinoa Salad

By  |  0 Comments


For the salad:

Quinoa Salad*  Mixed green leaf lettuce
*  1/2 an avocado
*  Handful of cherry tomatoes- halved
*  1/2 cup white quinoa
*  Handful of pumpkin seeds
*  Handful of dried cranberries
*  1/2 cup cubed cucumber

For the dressing:

*  1/2-1 cup good olive oil
*  Juice of 2 lemons
*  Dash of kosher salt
*  1/4 cup minced shallots
*  1 tsp honey
* 1 tsp dijon mustard


Toss all salad ingredients together.   Mix dressing ingredients and drizzle it over the salad.  You can save the dressing in a mason jar in the fridge and use it throughout the week!

(Sometimes I get crazy and make a variation where I toss a few frozen mango slices in the dressing then blend it up for a creamier dressing to pour over the top.)

..and there you go! Quinoa recipe numero uno. Try it out, then start getting creative with your own variations!
