Ingredients
 

Salad:

  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1 1/2 cup finely sliced red cabbage
  • 1 large red bell pepper (diced)
  • 1/3 cup finely diced red onion
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup edamame
  • 1/2 cup cilantro (chopped)
  • 1-2 green onions (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup chopped peanuts (for garnish)
  • Optional: 1 jalapeno pepper

Dressing:

Instructions

  • Cook quinoa like this.
  • While the quinoa is cooking, prepare all veggies. I like to use a mandoline for the cabbage to get it very thin, but you can also just chop.
  • When the quinoa is done, let it cool before adding to a large mixing bowl. 
  • Add in all the veggies.
  • To prepare the dressing, simply whisk all ingredients together in a bowl. Add more water as needed until desired consistency is reached. 
  • Add the dressing to the salad bowl and toss to combine. 
  • Top with crushed red pepper flakes and peanuts and enjoy!

Notes

Once prepared, this salad will store in the fridge for about 5 days. 
If you don't like any of the veggies included in the recipe, you can leave them out or swap for chopped cucumber, broccoli, chickpeas etc.
I almost always use low sodium soy sauce/tamari because I find the regular stuff to be a bit too salty. You can use either one and then add more salt to the final recipe if you think it needs it.

One cup of uncooked quinoa is about 3 cups of cooked quinoa if you already have it prepared.
