Quinoa Salad + Pomegranate Dressing

What's great about it

This is my delicious healthy summer salad of the moment. I wanted something that was vegetarian-friendly and I loved the idea of making a tabouli style salad using a little quinoa and lots of fresh parsley, mint and spinach.

Ingredients

Serve 4

1 cup cooked quinoa

2 cups parsely chopped

2 cups mint, chopped

2 large handfuls, baby spinach leaves

1 small red onion or 2 shallots, finely sliced

2 Lebanese cucumbers, chopped

2 ripe tomato, chopped or 250 g cherry tomatoes

20 g pumpkin seeds

20 g almonds or pistachio, chopped

Jewels from 1 fresh seeded pomegranate or a handful of goji berries

Method

 

  1. Combine all the dressing ingredients until creamy. Taste and check, it should be lovely.
  2. Mix together parsley, mint, spring onion and spinach.
  3. Add the tomato, cucumber, seeds, quinoa and almonds.
  4. Mix in a few tablespoons of the dressing.
  5. Spoon into a large serving bowl and enjoy.
  6. Have extra dressing on the side in case you need more.
