- 2 cups cooked quinoa I use my rice cooker
- 1 cup craisins
- 1 cup slivered almonds
- ¼ cup chopped fresh mint
- ¼ cup olive oil
- 2 tablespoon finely chopped mint
- 4 tablespoon fresh squeezed orange juice
- 1 teaspoon maple syrup (optional)
- salt and pepper to taste
Toss all salads ingredients in a medium bowl. Salt and pepper.
In a small bowl whisk dressing ingredients together. Add some orange zest if you want extra orange flavor. Be sure to add salt and pepper to dressing.
Pour over salad and toss with a fork. The fork keeps the quinoa fluffy.
