Great Quinoa Recipe by Take Back the Kitchen

P1030713.JPGAre you tired of being the person who always brings the paper products to a BBQ? Wouldn't it be nice to have a specialty like all the ladies way back when who were known for their strawberryJell-O mold or their apple crumble? Well, now you can be that throwback party goer but with a healthier and more delicious dish. This quinoa and dish is easy to make and packed with protein. Give it a try!

Quinoa with Almonds and Dried Cherries:

6 cups cooked and cooled quinoa (about 3 cups raw -cook one cup quinoa to two cups water until tender)
6-8 thinly sliced scallions, white and green part
2-3 tsp salt
1 cup chopped almonds
1 cup chopped dried cherries (or craisins if need be)
1 TBS orange zest from 1-2 oranges
ground pepper

In a large bowl,combine all the ingredients for the salad

2/3 cup Orange juice
1/2 cup olive oil
(you will only use about 1/2-3/4 of this dressing so use the rest for another time
whisk together until completely emulsified

Pour dressing, not all of it, over the salad, stir until all quinoa is coated with dressing and adjust salt and pepper. Enjoy!
