My quinoa salad recipe


Hi Everyone,

Over the summer I created an amazing quinoa salad recipe.  I combined two recipes I found and then added sweet corn and black beans to them.  Enjoy, Evan


Evan’s Quinoa Salad

(Serves two to fifteen depending on appetites)



One yellow onion, diced medium to fine

One granny smith apple, cored, diced medium to fine

One third of a cup of butter or olive oil

2 cups quinoa, rinsed

1 ¾ cup water

1 teaspoon low down dirt seasoning (see URL below for purchasing details)

15 ounce can black beans

One red pepper, cored and diced medium

1 ½ cups sweet corn, cooked

¾ cup golden raisins

½ cup nuts, pine nuts or pecan pieces or a mix

¼ cup finely ground cilantro



¼ cup olive oil

¼ cup fresh lime and clementine juice, (one lime, two clementines reamed)

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 clove garlic, grated  If you do not have low down dirt any herb mix will do as a substitute, preferably no sodium.
