Would you like a really delicious tasting and beautiful looking salad?
Here are the ingredients and the steps to follow:
3 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
3 Tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar
1 Tablespoon Lemon or Lime Juice OR White Vinegar (to taste)
Salt to Taste (for your reference I have added 1/2 teaspoon salt)
1/2 Teaspoon Ground black pepper
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cumin
1/4 teaspoon Cayenne pepper or to taste (OPTIONAL)
To Cook Carrots & Beets:
1 Cup Carrots - chopped into small pieces
1 Cup Beets - chopped into small pieces
1 Teaspoon oil
1/4 Cup Water
Other Salad ingredients:
100g Spinach (3+1/2 cups firmly packed)
1/2 Cup Red Onion (100g)
1/2 Cup Parsley finely chopped (OPTIONAL)
1 Cup Walnuts - Toasted preferably (85-90g)
▶️ IMPORTANT TIPS:
- Chill the cooked quinoa, carrots & beets and veggies
- ADD THE DRESSING JUST BEFORE YOU SERVE. If you at it before hand the quinoa will soak it all up and it won’t be as flavourful.
- If you want to make a smaller batch cut the recipe in half.
