Quinoa Salad with Cranberries and Apricot – Quinoa Quartet Bloghop

To make this delicious salad you need the following ingredients:

the juice of 1 lemon
3 tbsps olive oil
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp paprika
ground pepper (fresh)

1 cup quinoa (rinsed)
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups cold water

1 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup dried apricot (finely diced)
1 apple
1 avocados
1/2 cup toasted walnuts (chopped)

First of all make the dressing. In a bowl, whisk together lemon juice, oil, coriander, cumin and paprika. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Then, make the salad. First prepare the quinoa. In a saucepan, combine quinoa, salt and cold water. Bring to a boil.  Stir, cover and let it simmer for about 15 minutes or until water is absorbed and quinoa is tender. Fluff with a fork and let it cool completely.

Cover the cranberries and apricots with warm water and let stand for about 15 minutes or until plump. Drain and set aside.

Just before serving, peel avocado and apple and cut into bite size chunks. Place in a bowl and toss with dressing to prevent discoloration. Add cooled quinoa, cranberry, apricots and walnuts.

Enjoy your meal!
