I am so excited about this recipe I found for a crunchy quinoa salad with peanut-ginger sauce. It is SO good. I’ve eaten it for 4 meals in the past 3 days. So I must share it with you!
This recipe has so many things that I love: red cabbage, red onion, cilantro, and peanut butter! I chopped the ingredients, then squeezed the juice of an entire lime over them.
I followed the recipe fairly closely, but when I tasted the sauce, I decided it needed a little kick. I added some fresh minced garlic and a sprinkle of crushed red pepper. Oh, and I didn’t have freshly grated ginger, so I used an eighth of a teaspoon of ground ginger instead.
After the quinoa was cooked and cooled a bit, I mixed all of the sauce into it. (Yum, sauce!)
Then I stirred in all of the other delicious ingredients!
This crunchy, flavorful salad is so amazing on its own, BUT I think I found a way to make it even better! For lunch today, I put the salad inside a flour tortilla, gave it a healthy topping of Sriracha, and ate it as a deliciously crunchy wrap! I cannot recommend this enough. I want to eat another one right now.
