DIRECTIONS

  • Whisk all dressing ingredients together in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • Cook raw quinoa in a large skillet for 4 minutes over medium heat, stirring frequently.
  • Pour quinoa into a sieve and put the sieve in a bowl.
  • Add enough water to cover the quinoa and rub the grains between your hands for 30 seconds. Rinse and drain.
  • Do this two more times. If you skip this step, your quinoa will be bitter. (If you don't want to go to so much trouble, try making this with couscous instead.).
  • In a large saucepan, combine rinsed quinoa with 2 3/4 cups water and 1/2 tsp salt.
  • Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Bring to room temperature, then stir in remaining ingredients and dressing.
  • Cover and chill.
