Quinoa and Toasted Pecan Salad with Herbs

I’m on a bit of a quinoa tare right now. I found this recipe on About Food and it is delicious!

  • 2 cups quinoa, cooked (I added a veggie cube to the quinoa when it was cooking)
  • 1/2 cup pecans (pine nuts or almonds may be substituted) ( I actually toasted almonds and pecans)
  • 3 tbsp fresh mint, chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 3 scallions (green onions), chopped
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • salt and pepper, to taste


In a large bowl, combine the cooked quinoa, nuts, parsley and mint.In a separate bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice and garlic salt, then pour over quinoa. Gently toss this dressing over the quinoa. Season with salt and peppa.Chill for at least 15 minutes before serving to let the flavors blend. Toss again before serving

I served this with this.

    Love quinoa – I buy mine at Rube’s Rice in the St Lawrence Market. Rube is 80 years old and fit as a fiddle, running his business. This particular quinoa is a beautiful mix of red, black and golden seeds.

    Your recipe is classic!
