Quinoa and Spinach Salad

This very easy Quinoa and Spinach Salad is so delicious. As well as being nutrient-dense, it has vibrant colour and the flavoursome tang of citrus. It has a base of nutritious quinoa, with flavour, colour and nutrients added by spring onions, baby spinach, mandarin segments, pomegranate arils and slivered almonds. Enjoy it as a side dish to meat, poultry or fish or a nutritious, meat-free, light meal.

For the Salad:
  • 1 cup (175 g) white quinoa – rinsed well
  • 2 cups (500 ml) water – for cooking the quinoa
  • 4 mandarins – segments separated, and white membrane removed
  • 5 spring/green onions – finely sliced – the white and a little of the green part
  • 1 1 /2 cups baby spinach leaves
  • ½ cup flaked almonds
  • ½ pomegranate – arils removed

For the dressing:
  • 4 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice – freshly squeezed, or to taste
  • 3 teaspoon maple syrup
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper – to taste
