Quinoa is one of those foods that can be used in so many ways.
I love experimenting and with different combinations and coming up with fabulous salads. It’s amazing how easy it is to put together a few ingredients and in no time have an incredible dish. And don’t forget how great leftovers are for the next day!
Not Sure How to Make Quinoa? Here’s My Easy Fool Proof Directions:
Bring 1 1/4 cups of water and 1 cup of quinoa to a boil in a medium saucepan. Once it starts to boil, turn the heat to low, cover the pan and cook for 12 minutes. Then turn the heat off and leave the covered pot on the stove for at least 15 minutes. Fluff with a fork and allow the quinoa to cool. This makes 3 cups, you can freeze leftovers in 1 cup portion sizes!
I’d love to hear what you put in your quinoa salads!

For the Salad:
For the Dressing:
Make the salad dressing: Add peanut butter, tamari, sesame oil, olive oil, grated ginger, minced garlic and maple syrup to a bowl and whisk until smooth. You may need to add water if the dressing is too thick. Set aside.
Put all the salad ingredients in a bowl and toss. Add dressing as needed and mix well. Add peanuts and fresh basil.
