Quinoa, Broccoli, Feta, and Cranberry Salad

April 24, 2014 - By Sophie Blais

Temps de lecture 2 minutes

Here’s a perfect lunch recipe. I only needed about 20 minutes to prepare everything while cooking supper at the same time. This salad is even better when you let it sit in the fridge overnight, as all the ingredients get to absorb the dressing.

4 servings

500 ml (2 cups) low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
250 ml (1 cup) quinoa, dry
500 ml (2 cups) canned mixed legumes, rinsed and drained
500 ml (2 cups) broccoli, cut in small florets
1 sweet red pepper, finely sliced
60 ml (1/4 cup) dried cranberries
60 g (1/4 cup) light feta cheese, crumbled
30 ml (2 tablespoons) pecans, chopped

15 ml (1 tablespoon) olive oil
15 ml (1 tablespoon) balsamic vinegar
Juice from a lime
5 ml (1 teaspoon) maple syrup
5 ml (1 teaspoon) Dijon mustard
Salt and pepper, to taste

  1. In a pan, bring the chicken broth to a boil. Cook the quinoa according to package directions. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the legumes, broccoli, sweet red pepper, cranberries, feta, and pecans.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the dressing ingredients. Blend the dressing in the salad, and mix thoroughly. Add salt and pepper.
  4. When the quinoa is ready, mix it with the salad. If it’s still warm, it will soften the broccoli, which will only make your salad better.
  5. Let sit in the fridge for about 1 to 2 hours.

Bon appétit!
