DIRECTIONS

  • Whisk together lime zest and juice, butter, oil, sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl.
  • Wash quinoa in 3 changes of cold water in a bowl, draining in a sieve each time.
  • Cook quinoa in a medium pot of boiling salted water (1 tablespoon salt for 2 quarts water), uncovered, until almost tender, about 10 minutes.
  • Drain in sieve, then set sieve in same pot with 1 inch of simmering water (water should not touch bottom of sieve).
  • Cover quinoa with a folded kitchen towel, then cover sieve with a lid (don't worry if lid doesn't fit tightly) and steam over medium heat until tender, fluffy, and dry, about 10 minutes.
  • Remove pot from heat and remove lid.
  • Let stand, still covered with towel, 5 minutes.
  • Add quinoa to dressing and toss until dressing is absorbed, then stir in remaining ingredients and salt and pepper to taste.
