    Awesome salad! Made a few times now and always a hit. Only change I make is using herb infused olive oil instead of the coconut oil.

    this was lovely, easy to make, great flavour combination. next time i might try less quinoa and add some salad greens to lighten it up.
    was amazing the next day too (and i hate eating next day salad).

    Submitted by emlochie on 11. December 2017 - 10:55.

    Loved this salad - I didn't have pecans so swapped with walnuts (careful not to mix as long as they mush easier than pecans!!!) and didn't have basil so left it out. I wanted to bulk this up as I had quite a few people to cater for so added in another apple and 2 sticks of celery as well as a handful of feta. Yummy thank you for a delicious different salad.

  • This is my new 'go to salad'.

    Submitted by Food Goddess on 8. March 2016 - 22:15.

    This is my new 'go to salad'.  Love the crunch of the apple and I added some finely chopped celery.  Another tip to make it even tasty is to add some tomato paste to the water when cooking the quinoa.

  • Fantastic salad, very easy

    Submitted by janinemanwaring on 31. December 2015 - 08:59.

    Fantastic salad, very easy and flexible with ingredient changes - I substituted macadamias for the pecans, green apple for the red, and left out the tomatoes and coconut oil because I didn't have any. Thanks!

    It's always good to be able to make a salad the day before it's required when entertaining.  The salad was easy to make and tasty with a nice dressing and kept well in the frige..   Thank you for the recipe.

    What a great salad!  Lovely and fresh tasting and will definitely be on my Summer salad list.  I didn't have sundried toms so replaced them with chargrilled capsicum strips which was very nice.  Next time will try it with the tomatoes.

    Submitted by J9design on 3. January 2014 - 16:26.

    I just made this but added some roast pumpkin cubes (I had leftover) and chopped shallot to the salad bowl with the apple as well.  This was really yum.  Really like the dressing. So glad to have found a nice quinoa salad recipe as I'm keen to use it more often. I also added a good teaspoon of the TM Vege Stock to the water that the quinoa was steamed in.
