Lemony Quinoa Salad

Lemony Quinoa Salad

This quickly became one of my favorite easy quinoa salads. It’s quick and easy with savory, sweet & a bit of sour flavors. I couldn’t stop eating it!

  • 1 Cup Quinoa
  • 1 ½ Cups Water
  • 3 Tablespoons Lemon Juice (about 1 lemon)
  • 1 clove of Garlic, finely minced
  • ½ teaspoon Cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon Sweet Paprika
  • 1 Tablespoon Flax Oil
  •  ¼ – ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 3 Tablespoons Parsley, minced
  • 2 Stalks Scallions, thinly sliced
  • ½ Cup Raisins
  •  ½ Cup Sliced Almonds, Toasted
  • 1-2 Haas Avocados, Cubed

Place quinoa and water into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes, turn off the heat and let sit for about 10 minutes. Spread the quinoa on a sheet pan to cool quickly. Or, you can use leftover quinoa or another grain.

Mix together the lemon juice, cumin, paprika, flax oil, salt, parsley & scallions. Mix with the quinoa and remaining ingredients.  Adjust salt to your liking.
