Quinoa salad

Quinoa Salad with mango and cilantro lime dressing

For the salad all you need is cooked quinoa (I usually follow the package directions and replace water for chicken broth) and whatever veggies and/or fruits you have available. The combination for the batch in the picture was grape tomatoes, mango, purple cabbage, purple onions and corn. I wish I’ve added avocados. It would’ve made this already good salad even better.

Here are the steps for the Cilantro lime dressing:

Dice or pure in the blender:

  • 1/2 cup cilantro (go up to 1 cup if you really love cilantro)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 cup lime juice (about 3 limes)
  • 1 tbsp agave syrup (or honey)
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cumin
