Nutty and Fruity Quinoa Salad with Maple Vinaigrette

This quinoa salad is very high in magnesium and makes a tasty side to a weeknight meal

    1 cup quinoa, rinsed 250 mL
    1⁄2 cup sliced almonds 125 mL
    1⁄2 cup coarsely chopped apple 125 mL
    1⁄2 cup coarsely chopped dried apricots 125 mL
    1⁄4 cup toasted unsalted sunflower seeds 60 mL
    1⁄4 cup dried cranberries 60 mL
    1⁄4 cup raisins 60 mL
    2 tbsp finely chopped fresh mint 30 mL
    Maple Vinaigrette
    1⁄3 cup pure maple syrup 75 mL
    1⁄4 cup cider vinegar 60 mL
    1⁄4 cup honey mustard 60 mL
    2 tbsp canola oil 30 mL
    Quinoa is an ancient grain from South America. Some brands need to be rinsed before cooking, to remove a bitter outer coating; others do not. Familiarize yourself with the quinoa brands available in your area to learn whether rinsing is required.
    If you’re making quinoa on the weekend, cook extra to make this salad during the week.
    You can also use reduced- sugar maple-flavored syrup in the dressing.
    The vinaigrette makes 1 cup (250 mL), but you only need 1⁄2 cup (125 mL) for 8 servings. Place the remainder in a jar, cover, refrigerate and for up to 1 week.


    1. In a medium saucepan, combine quinoa and 2 cups (500 mL) water; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for about 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and quinoa is tender. Let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
    2. Transfer quinoa to a large bowl. Add almonds, apple, apricots, sunflower seeds, cranberries, raisins and mint; toss to combine.
    3. Vinaigrette: In a small bowl, whisk together maple syrup, vinegar, mustard, oil and 2 tbsp (30 mL) water. Pour 1⁄2 cup (125 mL) of the vinaigrette over the salad, reserving the remainder for another use. Toss salad gently to coat.

    • 2 slice(s) whole-wheat sandwich bread, crusts removed, torn into pieces
    • 8 ounce(s) white mushrooms, wiped clean
    • 3 teaspoon(s) extra-virgin olive oil, divided
    • 1  medium onion, finely chopped
    • 2 clove(s) garlic, minced
    • 1/2 cup(s) Scallion-Lemon Mayonnaise (optional)
    • 1 pound(s) lean ground turkey breast
    • 1  large egg, lightly beaten
    • 3 tablespoon(s) chopped fresh dill
    • 1 1/2 tablespoon(s) coarse-grained mustard
    • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon(s) freshly ground pepper
    • 6  whole-wheat buns, (optional)
    • Lettuce leaves & tomato slices, for garnish

    1. Place bread in a food processor and pulse into fine crumbs. Transfer to a large bowl. Pulse mushrooms in the food processor until finely chopped.
    2. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic and the mushrooms; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and liquid has evaporated, about 10 minutes. Add to the breadcrumbs and let cool completely, 15 to 20 minutes.
    3. Meanwhile, prepare Scallion-Lemon Mayonnaise, if using.
    4. Preheat grill to medium-high.
    5. Add ground turkey, egg, dill, mustard, salt and pepper to the mushroom mixture; mix well with a potato masher. With dampened hands, form the mixture into six 1/2-inch-thick patties, using about 1/2 cup for each.
    6. Oil the grill rack. Brush the patties with the remaining 1 teaspoon oil. Grill until no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes per side. (An instant-read thermometer inserted in the center should register 165 degrees F.) Meanwhile, split buns and toast on the grill for 30 to 60 seconds, if using. Serve burgers on buns, garnished with lettuce, tomato and Scallion-Lemon Mayonnaise, if desired.

    Concord Waldorf salad
    Waldorf salad is often served with a creamy dressing, but in this incredibly healthy version, the sweetness of the grapes speaks for itself. Walnut oil is a source of omega 3 fatty acids that augment the heart and brain benefits of the grapes.

    2 cups green apples, diced
    4 stalks celery, diced
    2 cups concord grapes, seedless
    1 cup walnuts
    4 tablespoons walnut oil
    2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
    1/2 teaspoon salt

    1.   Toss together the apples, celery, grapes, and walnuts in a large bowl; set aside. 

    2.   In a small bowl, whisk together the walnut oil, apple cider vinegar and salt. 

    3.   Toss together and serve.
