Fall is in the air, and Harvest Quinoa Salad with Smokey Maple Dijon Dressing is quick and easy.
First, using raw and cooked fall favorites combined created a savory dish. Using the sweet potatoes, and honey crisp apples provides the sweet. Secondly, the arugula and red onion give a contrasting taste, creating a sweet and savory salad.
Although parts of the salad are cooked, this salad is served cold. Even though it is intended to be served cold, you can combine hot and cold for a variation of your own.
Additionally, the crisp, fresh grape tomatoes, English cucumbers, and purple cabbage add color and vibrance to the salad.
I also chose to dress with a sweet and savory Smokey, Maple Dijon Dressing, topped with spicy and sweet pecans.
You won’t be disappointed.
