“This recipe is very good. Serve warm for a main dish or cold for a side dish. In place of quinoa, you can also use the same amount of brown rice or bulghur wheat.”

Original recipe yields 4 servings

Directions

  1. Pour the pineapple juice into a measuring pitcher, and add enough water to make 2 cups. Set the pineapple chunks aside. Pour the pineapple juice into a saucepan, and stir in the quinoa and lentils. Season with salt, black pepper, and curry powder. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the lentils and quinoa have absorbed the water, about 30 minutes. Stir in the coconut, and simmer for 5 minutes more.
  2. Stir in the pineapple chunks, pecans, and onion; cook briefly to reheat. Sprinkle with cilantro to serve.

I used fresh pineapple instead of the canned, wild onions instead of the red onion, and had to omit the coconut. I cooked the quinoa and lentils up in water while I cut up the pineapple. Great taste combinations and great visual appeal. This is a salad that I'll serve often!

I used sweetened coconut, and added mango - amazing.

I did not care for this dish hot. My husband liked it alot and the kids ate enough for me to know that they neither loved it or hated it. I did like this a lot better when it was cold and that was unanimous through my house. Despite the average rating, I will make this again but next time I will add some golden raisins. I think that this addition could actually bring it up at least one star and maybe even up to five. For whatever reason, despite the pineapple and pecans, this needs a contrasting flavor because it had a flat curry flavor and not enough depth.
