Apple & Cranberry Quinoa Salad

IMG_4472new.jpg

This one’s always at a hit at lunches and BBQ’s.  It’s great as a side dish  or a quick snack, as it’s quite light.  If you’d like to turn it into a fuller meal, add some honey-and-bbq-chicken to it.

Ingredients:

  • 1 red Apple
  • Packet of Quinoa & Bulgar Wheat
  • Rucola
  • Pecans
  • Walnuts
  • Dried Cranberries
  • Apple Cidar vinegar
  • Honey
  • Multigrain Mustard

Method:

  1. Start off by boiling the Quinoa & Bulgar Wheat, which should take around 12 mins.  Once it’s finished, run it under cold water and set aside.
  2. While the quinoa cools, chop up the rucola into tiny pieces, the red apple into small cubes, slice up the cranberries,  and break the nuts into small pieces.  I emphasize the smalland tiny because it will taste the best f you can fit a little bit of everything into a spoonful.

Dressing

  1. Mix in Apple Cidar vinegar, Honey and Multigrain Mustard till you get the taste you desire.  Personally I add 1/2 a cup of apple cidar,  2 teaspoons of multigrain, and a whole lot of honey! Stir in well.
