quinoa-and-sweet-potato-everything-salad-500

For  the Salad:

8 oz bag of Lettuce

1 red pepper, chopped

2 cucumbers, chopped

½ Red onion, diced

A bunch of cherry tomato’s, cut in half

3 tbsp of Toasted almonds

1 ripe Avocado, cubed 

 

For the Quinoa:

Boil 2 cups of water

Add 1 cup of quinoa

Lower flame and add

1 tbsp dried onion flakes

1 tbsp soy sauce

2 tbsp of olive oil

 

Cook for about 20 minutes on a low flame covered

Let the quinoa cool for about 5 minutes  of the flame, covered, and then fluff with fork

 

For the Sweet Potatoes:

 

Cube 4 sweet potatoes 

Slice 1-2 onions

Slice 4-5 mushrooms

Add to a cookie sheet

 

Add ¼ cup olive oil

Salt

Pepper

A bit of chili powder 

Roast on 375 for about an hour 

Mix half way to avoid the onions and mushrooms from burning 

 

 

For the Dressing:

½ cup olive oil

About 3-4 tbsp of balsamic vinegar

1 tbsp lemon juice 

1-2 tbsp of kosher salt

½ tsp black pepper

½ tsp garlic powder 

3-4 tbsp of mayo

2 tbsp spicy brown mustard

1 tsp soy sauce 

3 tbsp of honey 

 

Mix all the ingredients together and mix very well until all is combined

 

Add all the elements to the salad and serve right away!

 

 

*Note- as a general rule, in a dressing, there is usually a 3:1 ratio with oil to vinegar.

I love using olive oil and all types of vinegars- they add so much flavor.

My favorite salad recipe ingredients:

Dijon Mustard

Spicy Brown mustard

Maple syrup

Honey

Soy sauce 

Fresh minced garlic

Fresh lemon juice

Fresh lime juice
