Ingredients

1 cup Lundberg Family Farms Antique White Quinoa – cooked

4 oz. green salad

2 ea. scallion, sliced

1/2 cucumber, sliced

2 Tbsp. dried cranberry

2 Tbsp. toasted almonds

Preparation

Quinoa Preparation:

  1. In a fine mesh sieve, thoroughly rinse 1 cup of quinoa under cold water until the water runs clear.
  2. Place quinoa in a medium saucepan with 1 1⁄4 cups water or vegetable broth and bring to a fast simmer.
  3. Cover with a tight-fitting lid. Reduce heat to maintain a low simmer and cook for 15 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat (keep covered) and steam for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and serve.

*If the quinoa is too firm at the end of cooking, it may be necessary to add 1-2 Tbsp. liquid and cook longer.

Salad Preparation:

In a large bowl, toss green salad, scallion and cucumber with cooled quinoa and add your favorite salad dressing. Top with dried cranberry and toasted almonds.
