This salad is really easy to throw together. It’s never boring, as you can sub different herbs and fruit. It’s packed with lots of good-for-you nutrients and can be served warm or cold.

Ingredients

Serves at least 6

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed (I use half red and half white)
  • 1 medium/large Granny Smith apple, peeled and chopped
  • 1 cucumber, scrubbed, cut in half lengthwise and cut crosswise into small pieces
  • ½ cup dried mango, chopped
  • ¼ cup sugar-free dried cranberries
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 1 3½-oz (100-g) pkg water chestnuts, chopped
  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced
  • chopped roasted peanuts (optional), for garnish

Dressing

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp chopped lemon zest
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp ginger
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cube frozen cilantro
  • ½–1 tsp honey


Preparation

In a small pot, bring water to a boil. Add

quinoa and reduce heat. Simmer covered,

12–15 minutes or until water is absorbed.

Remove from heat. Fluff with a fork.

Transfer to a large bowl. Add all remaining

salad ingredients.

Whisk dressing ingredients together

in a small bowl. Pour dressing over the

salad and toss to coat. If necessary, adjust

seasoning to taste. Garnish with peanuts if

desired; they add a nice crunch.
