So ridiculously chock full of nutrition and so incredibly good! This one is definitely a family favorite that always gets devoured. Yea…I’m not stoppin’ ’em.
3 cups cooked Quinoa (about 1.5 cups dry)
2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Coconut Oil or Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Pink Lady Apple (or other apple of choice), cored and diced
1/2 cup small chopped Carrot
1/2 cup small chopped Celery
3/4 cup Dried Cranberries
1/2 cup chopped Walnuts or Pecans
Juice & zest of 1 Naval Orange
3 Tbsp Honey
S&P, to taste
If using coconut oil, stir it into the warm quinoa so it melts and evenly coats it.
Mix together all ingredients.
Cover and chill 1-2 hours (or until ready to serve) to allow salad to cool and flavors to meld.
