Directions

  1. Bring the quinoa, vegetable broth, and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender, and the water has been absorbed, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. While the quinoa is cooking, prepare the dressing by whisking together the orange juice, lemon juice, olive oil, mustard, honey, and curry powder in a mixing bowl. Stir in the cooked quinoa, red onion, and raisins; season to taste with sea salt. Cover, and chill in the refrigerator several hours until cold.
  3. Stir in half of the toasted almonds immediately before serving. Sprinkle the remaining almonds over top to serve.

This is really good! I loved the curry flavor...it reminds me of the curry chicken salad I used to eat in Belgium. I made this recipe as is except I did add some fresh cracked pepper. Thanks for a new way to eat quinoa!

This was good. I did use reduced sodium chicken broth instead of vegetable. Really didn't get the citrus flavor that much at all, mostly curry. I really like curry, but that is really the only flavor you taste. Would probably make it again using some orange zest in there as well and perhaps chopped carrots or celery or some kind of crunch.

This was quite good. Had a wonderful flavor to it that made for a light and refreshing lunch. It makes a whole lot though- next time I will only make a half batch, as I couldn't finish it in a week. But I will definitely make again. Thanks for sharing!

I had had a salad like this about a week ago and wanted the recipe, stumbled across this one and was so happy. This is so simple, with a lot a flavour, definitely a keeper.

I changed this recipe by omiting the oil and raisens and cooked the sauce on the stove and served it hot. It was awesome!

This was delicious! I made for a picnic lunch side dish and it travelled beautifully. I only added the almonds upon serving (packed them seperately) to preserve the crunch. Loved it!

Yummy!!! I didn't use all the sauce- it was a bit much for me, and I added an extra dash of curry at the end (just to suit my taste). Amazingly yummy!

This quinoa dish is wonderful and quick and easy to make. I cooked the quinoa in water and toasted my curry pwd. before adding. I didn't really get a lot of the citrus flavor as I think I added too much red onion. I love red onion though, so it wasn't a negative for me. Will make this a lot!
