Quinoa Salad and Sunbutter Dressing

I was given the recipe for the Sunbutter Dressing from a friend and decided to make a Quinoa Salad to go with it.  The dressing makes about 2/3 cup and I only used a small amount for my salad.

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.

  1. Quinoa has become my replacement for rice and potatoes and always looking for new recipes. I love your Sunbutter Dressing for the salad, it sound delicious and I like the addition of blueberries too. I will definitely give this a try. Thanks so much for sharing with Foodie Friends Friday party this week. I've pinned and shared.
