Crisp apples, chewy quinoa and toasted almonds give this nutty and sweet curried salad a full flavor and hearty texture.



Toast almonds until fragrant in a 375º F oven, about 7 minutes. Set aside.

Rinse quinoa thoroughly in a fine sieve and drain. Bring 2 cups water to a boil in a saucepan. Add quinoa, return to a boil, stir, cover and reduce heat. Simmer until quinoa is tender but still chewy, about 15 minutes. Fluff quinoa with a fork and let cool.

For the dressing, whisk together honey, shallots, curry powder, salt and lemon juice in a large bowl. Season with pepper. Whisking constantly, add olive oil in a slow, steady stream and whisk until emulsified. Add quinoa, almonds, currants, apples and parsley; toss well.

Can't wait to see in the deli!...:-)

Would love to try this recipe, along with other varieties of quinoa.


This surpasses expectations. The curry flavor is very light and the nuts, fruit, and apple all provide nice different flavor and texture. I served it on a bed of spinach to get some greens in. Very good.

Serving size?

This says serves 6. Is one serving equal to about 1 cup?

re: serving size?

Sorry for the delayed response, had to check in with a couple people here! Typically, the serving size for our grain salads is 1/2 cup, but this one looks like it might be more like 3/4 cup.
Our rule for such details can be found here, if you're interested in reading more.
