Arugula Quinoa Salad

This salad is very much a kitchensink salad — whatever I have on hand or am in the mood of goes in. I especially like to use corn from corn on the cob that I’ve grilled (or broiled, if it’s not grilling season) for an extra punch of sweetness and char.


  • 2 cups quinoa
  • 5 oz (140 g) baby arugula
  • 2 shallots, finely diced
  • 2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp Tuscanini balsamic glaze
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ cup candied walnuts or pecans, roughly chopped
  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • ½ cup cooked corn (from the can or cut off the cob), optional

Cook quinoa according to package instructions. Place the diced shallots on the bottom of a container, then put the hot quinoa on top, letting it cook the shallot slightly. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
