I made this as a "good-bye" summer salad. It would be more suited for spring or summer, but it was still very much enjoyed with the spinach and black bean burgers. It's light and unlike any quinoa salad I've made. And so simple, too. What's not to love?
I got the recipe over here, and followed it pretty much to the letter.
Sweet Corn Quinoa Salad
- 1 cup quinoa + 2 cups water
- 1 1/2 - 2 cups corn, from a cob or frozen
- 2 green onions OR 1/4 small red onion, sliced
- 1 T lemon zest
- 2 T lemon juice
- 1 t minced/crushed garlic
- 1 T honey
- 1/2 t salt
- 1/4 t pepper
-- Meanwhile, whisk together the lemon zest, juice, garlic, honey and salt/pepper. Set aside.
-- With a little oil, saute the corn and green onion for 5-7 minutes.
-- Add the quinoa in with the corn and drizzle the dressing on top. Stir it all up and serve it warm or chilled.
