Salad with quinoa, asparagus and strawberries

OTHER LANGUAGES: deGerman

Today I’ll show you my quinoa salad recipe. At the moment asparagus and strawberries fit perfectly into the salad.

Depending on the market offer and season, you can use other vegetables for the salad.

Let yourself be inspired by the following…

1. Vegetable Variants

For example fennel and orange in winter… Zucchini and tomatoes in summer… Pumpkin and pumpkin seeds in autumn…

Roast zucchini and fennel in the pan.

Roast zucchini and fennel are an excellent match…

Instead of raw tomatoes simply braise tomatoes, caramelized, try. The result is a smooth salad creation.

2. Balsamic Vinegar and Strawberries

Back to the quinoa salad variant with asparagus and strawberries: Today there is balsamic vinegar with the strawberries and I prepare a balsamic vinegar reduction.

This is balsamic vinegar, which gives the strawberries a great taste kick and sticks well to the fruits.

3. Ideas for the Dressing

For the quinoa salad dressing, I invite you to try a combination of orange juice, lemon juice, curry and olive oil. Just an orange juice curry dressing.

Mix the orange juice dressing with a whisk.

Mix the orange juice dressing and slowly add the olive oil to create a finely emulsified salad dressing.
