Quinoa Pomegranate Salad with Hemp Seed
March 8, 2014
I have been in love with pomegranates since the first time I had one at 6 years old. Back then they were only available once a year and were a total treat found only at Asian markets and fruit stands. Now you can find pomegranates almost year round thanks to domestic and international production. The IsaCrunch Hemp Seeds adds a delicious nutty flavor, fabulous nutrition and 20 grams of protein to this recipe.
In a bowl, combine the cooled quinoa, and all of the other ingredients except the pomegranate seeds.
Mix well, adjust the seasonings and add in the pomegranate last and mix for a few more seconds. Serve right away or chill in the fridge for a few more hours.
No pomegranate seeds? Then dried cranberries, blueberries or chopped apricots can work. As will fresh orange or diced apple.
You can add an assortment of different colored peppers, red onion vs white, and use a different vinegar if you like. Middle Easter stores sell pomegranate syrup and vinegars to replace the honey or apple cider vinegar with. Basically have fun and make it yours.
