Quinoa salad with kumquats, cranberries and toasted almonds

So, this is my version of a good quinoa salad of the day: lots of white quinoa, 2 sliced kumquats (or calamondia), finely chopped dried cranberries, toasted sliced almonds and a half diced apples, topped off with some toasted sesame oil, olive oil and a bit of orange juice.


Quinoa salad with kumquats, cranberries and almonds
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 2-3 kumquats, thinly sliced, peel and all
  • half tart apple, finely diced
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries, chopped into finer dice
  • 3 TB sliced almond, shortly toasted in a dry pan
  • 1 TB olive oil
  • 1 TB orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • dash of salt
  • dash of cinnamon
Mix all the fruit ingredients with the almonds.


Add the quinoa and mix well and gently. Add the dressing either all into the salad, or mix separately and add.


Serve as side to other dishes, e.g. garlicky kale.
