Add crumbled queso cotija or feta cheese for a more indulgent dish. Serving tips: For best flavor, let the salad come to room temperature before serving. It’s delicious wrapped in butter-lettuce leaves or tortillas; you can also serve it with roasted vegetables drizzled with vinaigrette or a garlic-yogurt sauce.

  1. Bring water, salt, and chili powder to a boil in a medium saucepan. Stir in quinoa and edamame. Bring to a boil again, then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes, until all water is absorbed. Let rest, covered and undisturbed, for 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, purée peppers, garlic, olive oil, and lime juice in a food processor or blender until smooth.
  3. Stir pepper sauce, cilantro, and grated carrot into quinoa mixture. Add extra lime juice and salt to taste, if desired.
