These quinoa salad recipes are guaranteed crowd pleasers and will ensure your contribution to the summer potluck is a total winner!
Summer harvest vegetables and quinoa get royal treatment with a subtly-spiced chipotle honey vinaigrette. The recipe doubles easily for a large crowd.
Dill gives this easy salad a fresh herbal note that complements the creamy cheese. It's delicious as a side dish and makes a tasty lunch main.
The amount of water you need to cook quinoa varies from brand to brand, so check package instructions for best results. Or see the last slide for no-fail quinoa cooking methods. For an easy twist, top the salad with toasted slivered almonds.
This pretty multi-coloured salad packs not only a protein punch but also good amounts of fibre and iron.
Middle Eastern tabbouleh is usually made with cracked bulgur wheat. By using quinoa (that's actually a seed), this traditional salad becomes gluten-free.
Don't suffer soggy, mushy overcooked quinoa anymore! Either of these two fail-proof methods will have you cooking quinoa to perfection in no time.
