Warm Quinoa Salad with Edamame & Tarragon

April/May 2005, The EatingWell Healthy in a Hurry Cookbook (2006)

Your rating: None Average: 4 (135 votes)

Quinoa, a super food from South America, is packed with protein and fiber. Toasting it gives it a slightly nutty taste, a complement to the walnuts and a foil to the lemony tarragon dressing. Try this salad over greens of any sort: fresh arugula, Boston lettuce leaves or wilted spinach.

"LOVED this. The tarragon really works well. Only thing I did differenly was to toast the quinoa after rinsing it. "

very good

will make this again and half the recipe

easy and flavorful
Delicious complete meal

This was such an easy dish to make for a last dinner with my roommates, one of whom is a vegan. The flavor combination was awesome, and I will definitely make it again. It was a little dry for us, so we added a little vinegar, which worked well.

tasty, super convenient and easy to make, filling, nutritious
easy to make and the whole family likes this

This salad is delicious, and you can make it with ingredients that you can keep in your pantry and freezer - ready whenever you don't have time to shop or need a quick potluck option. The only fresh produce needed is a lemon.

this recipe is made with pantry/freezer staples
Tastier than I expected!

This was soooo delicious and I didn't feel guilty about eating it! I've never toasted my quinoa before but it really did give it a different flavor and the jarred red peppers really add to the dish. I think it would be good if you made it with peas in place of the edemame too. I served it on top of baby spinach. Really quick, easy, and healthy dinner. I'm going to recommend it to my vegan brother.

Easy, Fast, Yummy, Healthy

Loved this! The lemon-tarragon vinaigrette was perfect with the quinoa. Will defintely make this again--and recommend to my vegan friends!

Few ingredients, delicious taste, easy to prepare
