  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 1 package mache greens 3.5 oz
  • 4 scallions chopped
  • 2 small apples chopped
  • 1 cup pistachios
  • For Dressing:
  • 3 tablespoon well-stirred tahini
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • ¼ teaspoon turmeric
  • 2 - 3 tablespoon water to thin out
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Bring 2 cups salted water to a boil. Add 1 cup quinoa and return to a boil, stir. Cover with a tight-fitting lid, reduce heat to medium and simmer for about 12 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Or you can use a rice cooker.
  • Remove from heat, fluff with a fork and let stand for a few minutes with the lid on.
  • Add all salad ingredients into a large bowl and toss gently.
  • Make dressing. In a jar add all dressing ingredients and shake well. Adjust water to desired consistency. I used 3 tablespoon water.
  • Dress right before serving.
