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.
Warm Quinoa Salad with Edamame & Tarragon
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.
17 Reviews for Warm Quinoa Salad with Edamame & Tarragon
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 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.
Loved this! The lemon-tarragon vinaigrette was perfect with the quinoa. Will defintely make this again--and recommend to my vegan friends!
LOVED this. The tarragon really works well. Only thing I did differenly was to toast the quinoa after rinsing it.
