Quinoa or Couscous Salad with Orange

Quinoa Salad with Oranges

A beautiful salad with the slightest suggestion of Middle Eastern flavours and mixing the sweet with the savoury. It is a great Winter salad, when oranges ripen and hang soft and juicy on the trees in the back yard.

We have a few Quinoa salads, either published or coming up. I like to make 2 or 3 of them through the week for lunches or to accompany dinner, cooking enough quinoa for the 3 salads at the beginning of the week. It makes life easy!

Quinoa or Couscous Salad with Orange

Mix cooked couscous or quinoa with orange zest and juice, olive oil, maybe some honey, some sliced oranges, raisins or dried cranberries, chopped red onion and chopped almonds. Serve over greens, or not.

recipe notes and alternatives
Use pistachios rather than almonds – they pair so well with cranberries.
