This is a delicious and filling salad, perfect for your Pesach, or any time of the year, table.  Healthy, tasty and easy to prepare, this salad is a great accompaniment to any meal. 

Apple-Carrot Quinoa Salad with Lemon-Lime Honey Dressing

In a pot, cook 1 c. white quinoa in 2 c. water, till the water is absorbed.  Turn off the flame and drizzle the quinoa with a bit of light tasting olive oil.  Transfer the quinoa to a large bowl to cool.

While the quinoa is cooling prepare the dressing.  In a measuring cup or small bowl, combine:

2 1/2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice

2 1/2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

(You should have approx. 1/3 c. fresh citrus juice)

1/4 c. light tasting olive oil

2 cubes frozen basil

1/4 c. + 2 Tbsp. honey

dash black pepper

1/2 tsp. sea salt

Stir all together and set aside.

To the quinoa add:

1 Granny Smith apple, peeled and diced

3/4 finely diced carrots, peeled (you can also use shredded carrots, if you prefer)

add a couple of handful honey glazed almond sticks

1/2 c. diced scallions (approx. 2 scallions)

Pour the dressing over the salad and toss all ingredients together to combine.

Refrigerate and serve the salad cold, with the meal of your choice.  Or for a tasty and quick chol ah’moed lunch, top the salad with a piece of grilled salmon.

Happy cooking, b’tay’avon and enjoy!
