  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 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 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.
