Quinoa Salad Recipe with Lime + Fresh Mint

Quinoa salad recipes


  1. 1 cup dry quinoa
  2. 2 tablespoons fruity extra virgin olive oil
  3. Juice from 2 limes
  4. 2-3 fresh mint sprigs, leaves removed and chopped
  5. 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves or parsley
  6. Sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
  7. A handful of sweet and ripe cherry or grape tomatoes, quartered
  8. 2 tablespoons diced red onion- or use 2 chopped scallions
  9. 1 garlic clove, minced

First, rinse your quinoa in a sieve.
Cook the quinoa as you would raw rice: in 2 and 1/4 to 2 1/2 cups fresh salted water, covered, until all of the water is absorbed.
Feel free to use rice cooker to do this. The quinoa turns out fluffy, tender and perfect.
Scoop the cooked quinoa into a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients, tossing lightly with a fork until combined.
Taste test and adjust seasonings.
Cover and chill- the longer, the better. In fact, I think this salad tastes better the second day- so plan ahead and make it the day before.
Makes 4-6 servings.
