We are crazy for this Curried Quinoa Salad!
It’s colorful, flavorful but with only a mild taste of curry, and has a balanced mix of flavors & textures including a little crunch.
It works great alongside just about any veggie or protein.
Best part is it’s easy to make and can be made ahead of time, so perfect for meal prep or entertaining a crowd.
Recipe is adapted from Ina Garten’s Curried Couscous Salad, and it works beautifully with quinoa.
The details….Cooked quinoa tossed with finely minced carrots, red onion, currents, parsley, scallions and sliced almonds all mixed with a simple & subtle curry vinaigrette.
The curry vinaigrette is only 7 ingredients — olive oil, yogurt (I use almond milk yogurt but any non-greek yogurt will do), white wine vinegar and spices including mild curry, turmeric, salt and pepper.
All you do is make the quinoa, whisk the dressing together, then mix the dressing with the quinoa and add in the the other ingredients.
It couldn’t be quicker, easier or tastier!
Plus it makes a large quantity so perfect for dinner with leftovers for lunch or for a meal prep or for holiday entertaining.
Hope you love it as much as we do!
