Quinoa Salad and Sunbutter Dressing
Salad for One:
1/2 cup cooked quinoa
2/3 cups vegetables and fruit ~ I used Romaine lettuce (torn in small pieces), mini peppers, red onions and blueberries
Sunberry Dressing to taste (I used about a tbsp)
Sunflower Seeds or Pumpkin seeds
Sunbutter Dressing: makes 2/3 cups
3 tbsp Sunbutter
1 tbsp olive oil ( I used Pompeian Extra Light Tasting Olive Oil)
2 tbsp orange juice
3 tbsp water
1 tbsp dijon mustard
1/2 tbsp honey
1 small garlic clove
1/2 tsp salt
To make dressing, add all ingredients into food processor and mix until no lumps.
For salad mix quinoa, vegetables and blueberries, add dressing to taste. Mix well.
Serve on a bed of Romaine Lettuce.
Garnish with either sunflower seeds (I was out) or I used pumpkin seeds.
Cook's Notes: I will be adding more dressing when I make this salad the next time. It was so delicious but 2 tsp is just not enough to get the full flavour of the dressing.
