    Buggybears's Note:

    This is a riff on several quinoa salad recipes I've seen around. It's definitely just the basics - feel free to add whatever you like. The gourmet deli I worked at used the lemon vinaigrette with cherry tomatoes, cukes, bell peppers, and chickpeas; I like it with toasted almonds and raisins as listed below. Enjoy!

    Serves: 6



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Rinse the quinoa to remove the bitter coating. Cook quinoa according to package directions (bring quinoa and water to a boil, then cover and reduce to a simmer until all water is absorbed: about 10 minutes.).
    2. 2
      Fluff quinoa with a fork and allow to cool to room temperature while you make the dressing.
    3. 3
      Dressing: whisk olive oil into lemon juice and add garlic, if using. Add a big pinch of salt and ground pepper. Taste at this point - it will be sharp but add more salt if needed.
    4. 4
      Mix dressing into quinoa and add raisins, almonds, parsley, and onion/scallion. Mix thoroughly and taste again for seasoning; the flavors will mellow a bit in the fridge.
    5. 5
      Cool thoroughly and serve - this salad actually tastes better the longer it sits.
