organic fiesta lime quinoa salad


(adapted from natural philosophy)


ingredients: || increase or decrease amounts of any ingredient to fit your needs ||

organic quinoa (2 cups) || soaked overnight if possible

2 avocados

1-2 organic peppers (any color you want! i used all green because they were in sale, but a mix of yellow and orange would work great too)

1-2 organic tomatoes

1/2-1 organic purple onion (optional)

1/2 bunch organic cilantro chopped || in the pictures, i de-stemmed + put the whole leaf in (I’m definitely going to chop it up next time)



dressing: || decrease or increase amounts to taste ||

organic cold pressed sesame oil (1/2 cup)

bragg’s organic apple cider vinegar (1/4 cup)

organic onion powder

organic garlic powder

honey or agave (2 TBSP)

organic lime juice and/or lime essential oil if you need a stronger flavor

eden’s organic brown mustard or dijon mustard

blend all ingredients in a high speed blender (blendtec/vitamix)

pour over quinoa and mix

— refrigerate salad–





I dipped some organic multi-grain chips  in this

you could also make some pretty spectacular nachos || melt organic cheese on chips + spoonful fiesta lime quinoa on top (think of this as the salsa) + corn +olives + organic chicken
