Lime Mint Quinoa Salad

A salad with red and white quinoa that can be served hot or cold.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Cook quinoa. Use a mix of red and plain quinoa because the red has a nicer nutty flavor.
  2. Mix everything except the quinoa, salt and pepper. Let rest 5 minutes.
  3. While quinoa is still warm, add the oil and herb mixture so that the flavor will infuse.
  4. Add salt and pepper to round out the flavors. Garnish with a bit of mint.
  5. Note: great with mint oil brushed on to grilled shrimp and scallops (see my cookbook).
