Honey-Soaked Quinoa Salad with Cherries & Cashews


Honey Vinaigrette (Makes 1 cup)

Quinoa Salad


  1. For Honey Vinaigrette, in a small bowl whisk together ginger, honey, vinegar, lime juice, and garlic. Drizzle in olive oil, whisking constantly, until well combined. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. For Quinoa Salad, in a medium saucepan combine water, quinoa, and salt. Bring to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes, until liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat; let stand 10 minutes.
  3. Fluff quinoa with a fork. In a large bowl toss quinoa with cashews, apricots, cherries, and onion. Add lettuce, then drizzle with 1/2 cup of the Honey Vinaigrette. If necessary, season to taste with salt and pepper; toss again. Pass remaining vinaigrette. Refrigerate any remaining vinaigrette up to 5 days.
