Ingredients

  • 1 cup quinoa rinsed
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1/2 cup edamame frozen, thawed
  • 1/4 cup almonds sliced
  • 1/4 cup coconut unsweetened, shredded
  • 1 orange juiced and zested
  • 1 shallot small, minced
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • sea salt to taste
  • pepper freshly ground, to taste

Instructions

  • Put the quinoa in a pot with 2 cups of water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and cover and simmer until liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Allow to cool completely. (Alternately, you can use leftover cooked quinoa you may have in your fridge.)
  • Combine the quinoa with the bell pepper, edamame, almonds, and coconut. Toss until well mixed.
  • Combine the rest of the ingredients in a jar or other container with a lid. Shake vigorously until well mixed. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Toss the quinoa with the dressing and chill until ready to serve.
