The Chilled Cooked Quinoa salad with juicy citrus fruits!
This salad is cool light and extremely refreshing!
Wash 1/2 cup quinoa by rubbing vigarously with hands and then soak for 15-20 minutes. Wash again and drain. Simmer with 1 cup water till water evaporates and it’s tender & translucent with tiny tendrils coming out! Fluff up with fork and set to cool. Toss cooled quinao in lemon honey vinaigrette along with fruits, berries and nuts of your choice… I used peeled orange segments, kiwis, cranberries and pine nuts!
