I have a recipe for tangy quinoa salad which looks great, but lacking a good deal of the ingredients, I made this up as I went along. I didn’t measure anything, so I’ve approximated the amounts. Be free and happy with what you have on hand.
- 1/2c quinoa cooked in 1 cup water as per package instructions; allow to cool
- 3 diced dried apricots
- 1 dozen dried cherries
- 1/4c diced zucchini
- 1/4c diced red onion
- 1 green onion, thinly sliced
- 1/2tsp maple butter
- 1/2tsp garlic puree
- 2tbsp white wine vinegar
- squeeze of lime
Mix prepared quinoa, apricots, cherries, zucchini, red onion and green onion together.
In a separate bowl, mix remaining ingredients.
Add the dressing to the quinoa mixture. Toss thoroughly to mix.
I gobbled some of this with quark (my eat-it-all-the-time food these days) and let me tell you, it was good.
