How to Make Quinoa Salad

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 6 steps you must follow to make Quinoa Salad in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Cook quinoa as directed and allow to cool. While quinoa is cooling cut up all ingredients.
  • Step 2
  • In a REALLY large bowl add cooled quinoa; add oil, stir well, add vinegar, or lemon juice and stir to incorporate. Taste and adjust flavors as needed. You will do this a few times and at the very end as well. Add enough parsley and mint to your liking. I like more mint so I add more. It's absolutely ok to use dried but rub it in between the palms of your hand to release the oils. You will need about a tablespoon of each. By all means, use more if you like - I do! If you want to REALLY wow everyone, use white balsamic vinegar!
  • Step 3
  • Add ginger and stir. Taste for flavors. Ginger will be the heat to this dish. If you want more heat, add more.
  • Step 4
  • Add ALL the vegetables, raisins and cranberries. Stir really, really well. Taste and add more vinegar, or lemon, to adjust flavors for balance.
  • Step 5
  • Place in refrigerator to cool. Before serving taste and adjust if needed.
  • Step 6
  • This recipe is very, very versatile. Add more ingredients or change things up. It's all according to your taste.
