Quinoa and strawberry salad
( SERVES 6 )
I used a mix of white and red quinoa.
For the dressing
|3 Tbsp||Lemon juice|
|1 Tbsp||Honey, mild|
|1 tsp||Dijon mustard|
|2 tsp||Chopped thyme|
|2 Tbsp||Extra virgin olive oil|
|1 pinch||Salt and pepper|
For the salad
- Whisk the lemon juice, honey, mustard and thyme until smooth. Gradually whisk in the olive oil. Season.
- Rinse the quinoa in a sieve. Place in a saucepan. Bring to the boil then simmer for about 15 minutes until the quinoa is cooked and the water absorbed. Place in a large bowl and stir in the dressing. Cool.
- Place the almonds on a microwave-proof plate. Microwave on high power for 1-2 minutes, until the almonds are toasted.
- When the quinoa is cool, add the almonds and remaining ingredients.
