Green Quinoa Dinner Salad Serves 6



2 ½ cups / 12 oz / 340 gr cooked quinoa (you’ll need to cook a little over 1 cup of quinoa)

2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped

Cook quinoa according to package instructions.

Allow to cool and fluff with a fork.

Place quinoa, celery, olives, avocado, parsley and mint in a salad bowl.

Whisk together the dressing ingredients (except the red pepper flakes).

Just before serving toss the quinoa mixture with the dressing.

Sprinkle with red pepper flakes (if using) and serve.
