Quinoa Salad

I had one of those moments at the Farmers Market where I thought I needed all the herbs.  I keep fantasizing that I'm The Barefoot Contessa and know what to do with ALL the herbs. Okay, so I'm not and don't. So what did I make with these bad boys... a delish quinoa salad. Its incredibly easy although there are a few steps.  You can make fresh quinoa or used left over.  Its more like a cleaning out the refrigerator, I don't want to cook salad. The ingredients can be taken out or added depending on your preference. I can get Beau to eat all the greens in this salad.  One note, use whatever is seasonal.  If you don't have something feel free to add your families favorite veggies. 


1 1/2 cups Quinoa

1/2 cup broth (veggie or meat)

2 tablespoon olive oil   

pinch of salt (once cooked) 

Cook according to the package instructions. Set aside and let cool

Prepare your herbs and veggies: 

1 Tablespoon parsley

2 Tablespoons Dill

2 Tablespoons Mint

1 Tablespoons basil 

2 Tablespoons cilantro

4 stalks celery

1 mediums Persian cucumber

1 serene pepper chopped finely

6 asparagus stalks

2 green onions

green part of 1 spring garlic (if you have it, if not don't use)

1 Cup Cashews


3 limes

2 Tablespoons olive oil 

1 teaspoon mustard 

pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Make quinoa and cool. Lay the cashews on a tray with parchment paper and bake for 15ish minutes.  Steam the asparagus. 

Chop your other veggies into small pieces and toss into a medium sized bowl with a pinch of salt. Chop the herbs and toss into the bowl.  Toss in the warm quinoa and mix together. 

To make the salad dressing combine olive oil and limes in a small bowl and whisk.  Add in the mustard and salt and mix until combined.

This will make a lot of salad, more than enough for 2 people, so only add cashews to what you will eat right away. 

Notes: You can prepare all of these parts the day before, streaming asparagus, salad dressing, quinoa.
