Citrus Salad with Arugula and Quinoa

Citrus Salad with Arugula and Quinoa

Here is something for all the times you feel like you need an healthy break and all the vitamins you can pack in a plate to help you stay healthy during the seasonal change!

This salad has it all. The peppery green (baby arugula) and the nutrient-rich grain (quinoa is high in protein, fiber, anti-oxidants, magnesium, vitamin B, iron ... and so much more). It has juicy orange slices, tangy cranberries and crunchy almonds. All in one heavenly bowl.

Ingredients

  • 2 handfuls of baby arugula (enough for one serving)
  • 1/2 cup cooked quinoa grain
  • 1 small (or half large) orange 
  • 1 tablespoon sliced almonds
  • 1 tablespoon dry cranberry
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Cook the quinoa if you haven't done so, following the directions on the package. Let it cool down completely.
  2. Combine the lemon juice, olive oil, honey, salt and pepper in a small bowl. And whisk well.
  3. Prepare the orange: slice the top and bottom of the orange with a sharp knife. And slice away the peel completely. Cut in half and slice horizontally.
  4. In a bowl combine the arugula, with the quinoa, cranberries, almonds slices and sliced orange.
  5. Drizzle with the dressing and toss.
