Quinoa, mint and clementine salad

This easy-to-make quinoa salad recipe is perfect for a busy evening! It includes juicy clementines, sweet cranberries, protein-rich chickpeas and fresh mint.

Drizzled with a simple maple vinaigrette, this is the perfect colorful, nutrient-packed quinoa salad. Ideal after heavy holiday meals, it will give you energy and help your body to replenish nutrients!

 

Psttttt! You can adapt it in these various ways:

 

  • Quinoa: i used tricolor quinoa here, but feel free to use your favorite. If needed, the quinoa can be made ahead and the salad assembled when ready.
  • clementines: use blood oranges, mandarins or the variety of oranges of your choice!
  • Dried fruits: Instead of cranberries, try using fresh pomegranates.
  • Herbs: Use as much mint as you want. Mint is particularly delicious, but parsley can also be used.
  • The vinaigrette: Use a vinaigrette made with apple cider vinegar, orange juice, oil, minced garlic and pepper.
