Wild Arugula-Quinoa Salad With Cherries

“A delicious salad from the food blog, Kiss My Spatula. The original recipe uses handfuls as measurements for the cherries and arugula, so I estimated about how much I used.”

Directions

  1. Place quinoa in a fine-mesh strainer and run under cold running water. Rinse well.
  2. Add quinoa and water to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cover. Cook for 15 minutes until liquid is absorbed. Turn on heat and set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare vinaigrette. In a large bowl, whisk together lemon juice, mustard, fig jam, and honey. Slowly, while continuing to whisk, add olive oil until vinaigrette is emulsified.
  4. Add arugula, quinoa, and cherries to bowl. Gently toss and serve immediately.
