Method

  1. Cook quinoa using packet instructions. Once cooked fluff up and let cool completely. (NB: Personal preference I cook my quinoa for 15 minutes, packet says 30 minutes)

  2. Prepare all salad items, set to one side.

  3. Mix dressing together and combine well. You may need to heat the syrup a little to combine correctly.

  4. Mix the quinoa, salad items and dressing together. Taste and adjust for seasoning. Eat immediately or store covered in fridge. Best eaten fresh!
