My MIL went to a local coffee shop/small restaurant and found a salad that she really liked, and challenged me to re-create it.
I’m not sure i recreated it, but i did make something pretty darn tasty! So we will call this quinoa salad – attempt #1
- 2 cups cooked quinoa
- 1 tbl blood orange EVOO (or other citrus flavor)
- 1 tbl Cider Vinegar
- 2 tsp honey
- 1/2 tsp lime juice
- 1/2 tsp thyme
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 2 tbl chopped almonds
- 2 tbl chopped dried cranberries
Combine all ingredients. Allow to sit for 1 hour, to overnight for flavors to properly meld.
