Ancient Grain Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette Recipe

Looking for more ways to incorporate quinoa into your meal plan? Try this Ancient Grain Salad that we pair with our Citrus Vinaigrette.

Quinoa is a tiny grain that packs a nutritional punch! It’s high in protein and nutrients. Quinoa has a mild flavor and cooks up fluffy with a slight crunch. Quinoa can have a bitter residue on it, so make sure to rinse it well in a fine mesh strainer. To cook, you just use the 2 to 1 ratio and for this recipe 1 cup of water to ½ cup of quinoa. Feel free to volumize by adding your favorite bite-sized veggies to this recipe.
