This Asian quinoa salad is chock-full of nutrients and delicious flavour. On this hot summer day, my family and I are spending the day at a pool party. So I decided to make a fresh tasting salad for all to enjoy. This salad taste great at both room temperature, or chilled, making it an easy take a long dish that you can prepare ahead of time.
I love adding quinoa to a variety of dishes. It is such a versatile grain that is delicious in both hot or cold dishes. Plus, it’s a super healthy grain that has plenty of vitamins and nutrients. On a hot summer day, cool and fresh dishes are my favourite. So having been invited to spend the day by the pool inspired me to make this amazing dish! The freshly squeezed lime juice and cilantro combination is definitely a winner. This salad was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
If you’re looking for hot ways to use quinoa with a similar flavour combination, check out my Coconut Lime Quinoa side dish. Another deliciously satisfying recipe. 🙂
Since I made this dish for a large gathering, it did make quite a few portions. Feel free to cut back on the quantities if you don’t want quite as much. This dish does keep for a couple of days in the refrigerator though if you don’t mind eating the leftovers.
This Asian quinoa salad is super simple to make!
Just look at all those beautiful colours. Such an inviting salad. Give it a try! It will not disappoint.
