Ingredients

    3/4 cup uncooked quinoa
    2 cups chopped red cabbage
    1 red bell pepper, diced
    1/4 red onion, diced
    1 cup shredded carrots
    1/2 cup peanuts
    1/2 cup chopped cilantro
    1/4 cup diced chives

    Dressing:
    1/4 cup natural peanut butter
    2 tsp fresh grated ginger
    3 tbsp soy sauce
    1 tbsp honey
    1 tbsp red wine vinegar
    1 tsp sesame oil
    1 tsp olive oil
    juice of 1 lime

Directions

1. Rinse quinoa with cold water in a mesh strainer until water runs clear. This removes the bitterness sometimes associated with quinoa. In a medium saucepan, boil 1-1/2 cups water. Add in quinoa and return mixture to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and let it simmer for 15 minutes or so, until quinoa has absorbed all the water. Remove from heat and fluff with a fork. Place in a large bowl and set aside to cool. (Note: This should result in about 2 cups of quinoa.) 2. Make the dressing. Mix peanut butter and honey in a microwave safe-bowl and heat in microwave for 30 seconds, so they will be easier to combine. Add in ginger, soy sauce, vinegar, the oils and the lime juice. Stir until mixture is smooth and creamy. 3. Add dressing to quinoa. Stir to combine. 4. Fold in the cabbage, red pepper, onion, carrots, peanuts, cilantro and chives. Garnish with extra peanuts, chives and lime slices, if desired. Serve chilled or at room temperature. Tips: 1. Hello Salad Adaptable. Do you have cashews in your cupboard instead of peanuts? Sub 'em in. Want to try honey-roasted peanuts in place of the naked version? Do it. Want to skip the cilantro because it makes you gag? Sigh. If you have to. 2. Go make this. Right now. That is my biggest tip. Serving Size: 12
