Nectarine Quinoa Salad

Nectarine Quinoa Salad

Posted 2017-04-11 by finyfollow

The flavours in this salad are quite unique and you COULD substitute peaches instead of nectarines. You could use any type of quinoa - dark would probably look a nicer contrast, but tastes the same.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Serves: 2 as a side, 1 as a main

Ingredients
½ cup quinoa
1 cup chicken stock, or vegetable for vegetarians
A few handfuls of rocket
1 large nectarine, cut into cubes
2 tbsp read onion, or shallot, chopped
2 tbsp fresh coriander, chopped
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp olive oil

Method
  • Rinse the quinoa for a few minutes as this will take away the bitter taste which quinoa can have.

  • Put it in a saucepan, cover with the stock, put a lid on top and bring to the boil.

  • Turn down the heat and cook for 15 minutes on the lowest heat. Turn off the heat and let it stand for about 5 more minutes. Allow it to cool.

  • Mix the cooked quinoa, rocket, nectarine, onion and coriander in a bowl.

  • Add the lemon juice and olive oil, and season with salt and pepper, to taste.


  • Toss to combine and serve.

  • I served it with my layered noodles and salmon.
