Meat Free Fridays: Fruity Quinoa Salad

Posted on

1 cup quinoa, rinsed
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup chopped apple (I don’t peel it- I love the colour it adds – you can make it any colour apple you like or use a mixture)
1/2 cup chopped pear (or you can use a dried fruit here like dried peaches or apricots)
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup raisins
2 T. chopped fresh mint (optional)
1/2 cup maple vinaigrette (see below)

Cook quinoa as per package instructions.  Add remaining ingredients and toss!

Maple vinaigrette:  To make 1/2 cup:  whisk together 1/6 cup maple syrup, 1/8 cup cider vinegar (I found balsamic delicious here too), 1/8 cup honey mustard, 1 T. olive oil
