Cuisine: American

Ingredients

Salad

  • 1 Cup Cooked quinoa
  • 1 Head Of broccoli Raw
  • 1 Cup Of raisin or dried cranberries
  • 1/2 Medium Red onion
  • 1 Cup Of your favorite nut, I use walnuts but almonds, sunflowers seeds or pistachios will work

Salad dressing

  • 1/2 Cup Greek yogurt Unsweetended
  • 1/4 Cup Canola or olive oil mayo
  • 1/4 Cup Mustard Dijon
  • 1/2 Cup Red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 Cup Chopped scallions
  • 2 Tbsp Honey

Instructions

  • Cut broccoli into small florets
  • Dice red onion and walnuts
  • Combine quinoa, onion, broccoli, raisins and nuts in large bowl. Set aside.
  • Combine ingredients for dressing in bowl and whisk to combine. 
  • Add dressing to salad and salt and pepper to taste. Refigerate for 30 mins... the longer it sits the better it gets.. Enjoy! I like to serve this as a side to grilled chicken but it can be eaten by itself as it has lots of protein and vitamins.
