This salad packs some heat and is delicious – especially around lunch time when you’re at work. So good. Try this quinoa asian salad – and cook your quinoa in a rice cooker – it’s super easy.

Ingredients

  • 2 cup quinoa
  • 4 cups water (to make the quinoa)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 cups of coleslaw (I just grab a bag – no dressing)
  • 1 yellow and orange pepper chopped
  • half a red onion chopped
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • handful of cilantro chopped
  • 8 green onions chopped

Dressing

  • 1/2 cup of soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons of rice wine vinegar
  • 4 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1/2 tablespoon of red pepper flakes

First – gather all of your ingredients together. Then, chop the peppers and onions and set aside. Shred the carrots and chop the cilantro and set aside, too. Mix all of the dressing ingredients together. Once the quinoa is cooked and cooled, mix all of the salad ingredients together. Pour the dressing on and mix well. Then…you’re done!
