Quinoa Salad


A few of you have asked for the recipe for this one, you know I’m pretty bad at following along with writing recipes, I’m more of a throw it all together and hope for the best kinda gal, but I’ll try!


You’ll Need:

1 Green apple

Juice of 1 lemon

1/2 cup cooked quinoa

1 cup cooked edamame

1/4 cup craisins

pomegranate seeds, as many as you enjoy!

1 radish sliced thinly

chopped parsley, Italian or curly.

Can throw in some fresh mint if you like that too.


So while the quinoa was cooking away I chopped up the green apple into small cubes and let it sit in the juice of one lemon, to avoid discolouring but also to add flavour.

to the apple in lemon juice I added the thinly sliced radish, cooked edamame, parsley and craisins along with the pomegranate seeds.

Once the quinoa was cooked and cooled down I tipped all the goodness in and mixed it all around adding a splash of olive oil and salt and pepper to you taste.

Then I put it in my shiny new red bowl for the hungry people to enjoy!


Hope that makes sense and works for you. you can change the quantities as they work for you and your size of group that you are feeding, would also work well with farro.

Any questions just shout.

Happy salad days.
