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

Ingredients

Preparation

Toast almonds until fragrant in a 375º F oven, for about seven minutes.

Rinse quinoa thoroughly in a fine sieve and drain. Bring 2 cups of water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add quinoa, return to 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, shallot, 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, currants, apple and nuts and toss well.

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

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

Yummy

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.
