Tuna Quinoa Salad

Makes 6 Servings
wine DRINK PAIRING
Fresh Juice (Beet-Carrot-Pineapple-Celery-Ginger Recommended)

This light grain salad tastes strongly of tuna with additional tart, nutty and herby elements. The quality of tuna used plays a huge role in this salad’s flavor and texture, so we recommend spending the extra money for a really nice can.!

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 cups Organic Quinoa (we made a blend of both red & white)
  • 1 small Shallot, minced
  • ½ cup Fresh Parsley Leaves
  • ¼ cup Fennel Fronds
  • ¼ cup Celery Leaves
  • 1 can top quality Canned Tuna
  • ¼ cup Preserved Meyer Lemon, deseeded & minced
  • 1/3rd cup (Sherry) Vinaigrette (how to make a vinaigrette)
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS

When the quinoa is cooked, drain off any excess water and cool the quinoa.
