I have a thing about colorful foods, I really like my meals to have a least 3 colors to be a healthy meal. Well, it might not hold up scientifically, but I think it's a good guideline.
When we start with the BBQ season, I like to make a good salad to eat with the meat or fish going on the grill. Today I craved fruit, and I had some cooked quinoa in the fridge, so I mixed up this fruit salad, that would go perfectly with a piece of grilled lamb.
- 100 g quinoa
- 2,25 dl water
- salt (to taste)
- 1 lime, juice of
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint
Rinse the quinoa. Bring quinoa and water to a boil in a medium saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and add salt to taste. Let the quinoa stand, covered, for 5 minutes. If any more water remains, drain it. Let the quinoa cool.
Mix all ingredients in a small bowl.
Rinse, peel and slice the fruit and put them in a bowl. Add quinoa and dressing, and serve the fruit salad.
