Quinoa Salad

Quinoa Salad with Dill Yogurt Dressing

Quinoa is back in my kitchen and I am happily cooking it. Last summer I made quite a few dishes with quinoa. From salad, burger, Indian style porridge to alternative for rice, almost everything I made had quinoa as an ingredient. I am trying to compile some of my easy recipes and put them here for everyone to try. This recipe is really easy and requires 5 minutes to finish if you already have cooked quinoa. Cooking for oneself can be a tough job. I always keep some cooked quinoa and beans in my fridge and make salad with some veggies on the side. Gives me balanced nutrition and keeps me healthy.

Serving size : 2 – 3 cups

½ cup quinoa
½ tsp turmeric
2-3 small radishes, small cubed
½ cup cucumber, small diced  
¼ cup red onions
1 green chilli (remove the seeds and slice) (optional) / ¼ teaspoon cayenne powder
1 tsp fresh toasted cumin powder 
½ tsp apple cider vinegar
¼ cup Greek yogurt
2 tbsp finely chopped dill
Salt acc to taste

  1. Wash quinoa and cook it in a pan with turmeric and 1 cup water. Start heating it with open pan and when the water starts boiling, cover it with lid and cook on a low flame. This will take 20 – 25 minutes.
  2. Once quinoa is cooked, fluff using a fork and let it cool down/chill in refrigerator.
  3. Add the radishes, cucumber, onions, green chilli, yogurt with dill leaves, vinegar, salt and cumin. Mix well and enjoy!
