This hearty salad has a zesty combination of textures and contrasting flavors. Plus, it's loaded with fiber and nutrients.
- Bring water to a boil. Add quinoa; stir, cover, and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until quinoa is soft and water is absorbed, 15-20 minutes. Fluff with a fork and allow to cool slightly.
- Add green onions, dried cranberries, cilantro and celery to a large salad bowl. Toast the pecans in a small skillet and add to the salad bowl (optional). Add the olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar, sesame oil, salt and peppers to the bowl. Stir to mix.
- Stir in quinoa. Set aside for an hour if possible to allow flavors to marry. Serve at room temperature.
