Final week I attempted a quinoa salad on the Dallas Arboretum Meals and Wine Competition that blew my thoughts and I needed to attempt my hand at recreating it. Due to that dish, you all get a model new recipe! I’m so in love with this wholesome Spring Pea Quinoa Salad.

With peas, radishes, contemporary mint, and microgreens, this quinoa salad is ideal for spring – particularly in case you have contemporary peas within the backyard. Surprisingly, that is the primary quinoa recipe right here on The Rose Desk. The champagne French dressing pairs completely with the goat cheese and inexperienced onions. Moreover, this straightforward salad tastes so contemporary and has some fabulous crunch from the cucumber, radishes, and Marcona almonds.

I actually may eat this daily for lunch! This might be an incredible facet dish with virtually something from the grill: shrimp, rooster, and even lamb lollipops. We ate this with Lemon Rosemary Complete Grilled Rooster and Grilled Asparagus and it was excellent!
