Prep Time: 20 mins Cook Time: 12 mins Total Time: 32 minutes
Yield: about 11 cups
Category: salad
Method: boil

ingredients

  • 1 cup quinoa, uncooked, + 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup finely sliced red onion
  • 1 cup diced mango or peach chunks
  • 3 cups cucumber, diced
  • 1 cup shredded carrot
  • 1 ½ cups shredded purple cabbage or radicchio
  • 2 cups shelled edamame, defrosted
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened toasted coconut flakes
  • ¼ cup roughly chopped almonds
  • 2 tbsp each pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds
  • ¼ cup finely chopped parsley
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh basil
  • a few good shakes of black pepper


For the dressing:

  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water


instructions

  1. Boil the quinoa in water according to package directions. This should take about 12-15 minutes, and all water should be absorbed. Remove it from the heat, fluff with a fork and allow it to cool.
  2. Whisk together the dressing in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. Prepare all remaining ingredients as indicated above and toss them together in a very large bowl. When the quinoa has cooled, add it to the mixture, along with the dressing. Stir well to coat.
  4. While this salad can be enjoyed right away if you like, for best results, let it sit for at least 30 minutes – or overnight if you can. The quantity of dressing used is fairly small relative to the size of the salad because the lime, fresh herbs and peaches do an amazing job at creating flavour and moisture.
