yummy warm or chilled. You can add some fresh squeezed lemon juice to this also. If no parsley I have made it with chives, and tarragon (fresh)

"I just made this again, and I used a tofu salad dressing (that I had pre-made from my vita-mix cookbook) for most of the "dressing" It was again, so amazing!"

- Robilin


Are you making this? 
1/4 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
1 T+1 t white vinegar
1 Cup quinoa
2 c broth; chicken or veg
2 each mango; peeled and cubed
1/2 c green onion; sliced
1/2 c dried cranberries or cherries
1/4 c fresh parsley; chopped

Original recipe makes 8 Servings



Place quinoa in mesh strainer and rinse well. cook in saucepan with broth. bring to boil, then cover and simmer until water is absorbed and there is a "ring" of quinoa around edge of pan (approx 10-13 min). Stir, let stand, covered, 15 min. Transfer to large bowl; cover and cool in refrigerator for an hour. If you intend to serve warm skip this step.

For dressing: combine oil, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper to taste in small bowl; use whisk until blended. Pour over quinoa mixture, mix to blend flavors.

When ready to serve: add mango, green onions, cranberries and parsley to quinoa.


you can add a little mayo (wasabi is good) to this as well, and I may add some agave to the oil/vinegar combo.

Fast, delicious and easy to modify based on what is on hand. (I used baby spinach for the leafy green). Definitely going in the recipe box!
