Quinoa Salad Recipe

 1 cup quinoa
 2 cups water
 1/4 teaspoon salt
 1 cup chopped red cabbage
 1 cup shelled and cooked edamame
 1 red bell pepper, chopped
 1/2 cup shredded carrots
 1 cup diced cucumber
 ½ cup Jimmy’s Sweet & Sour Dressing
 2 tablespoons chopped green onion
 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
 1/4 teaspoon grated ginger
 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
 Salt and black pepper, to taste

Add water, quinoa, and salt to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 5 minutes. Turn the heat to low and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until water is absorbed. Remove from heat and fluff with a fork.


Place the quinoa in a large bowl and add the cabbage, edamame, red pepper, carrots, and cucumber. Set aside.


In a small bowl, whisk together the Jimmy’s Sweet & Sour Dressing, green onions, cilantro, sesame seeds, ginger, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper.


Pour the dressing over the quinoa salad and stir to combine.
