asparagus + red quinoa salad // meyer lemon dressing

asparagus + red quinoa salad // meyer lemon dressing

i bought some red quinoa a while back- i had never cooked with quinoa before and being that it is a complete protein i figured i would give it a whirl. i just wasn't sure what to do with it. the most adventurous i got was to add a 1/2 a cup to some basmati rice that i was cooking for a weeknight curry. then walks in asparagus- a favorite springtime favorite of mine that i look forward to every year. i am even attempting to grow some this year- the starter plant went into the earth last fall- so we will wait and see if anything decides to sprout up this spring. sorry a little off topic, anyways in walks asparagus and i immediately knew what was going in my quinoa.

asparagus, meyer lemon, shallot, baby bella; they seem to shout spring right at you- toss in a bit of sunny yellow pepper and you are on your way to a feel good salad to chase away the winter blahs

meyer lemon. good olive oil, a bit of sugar, fresh basil, a little dijon - this makes more than you need for the recipe; tastes great with roasted potato wedges.
