Asian Quinoa Salad with Ginger Dressing

New Year, New me. We all get in the groove with healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle. But why don't we keep that for the whole year? We can not eat like a pig and sweat like a pig too. We can control our diet from the new year and still keep going till the end of the year without worrying about anything if on a day to day basis we are eating healthy. This salad is perfect for lunch or dinner. I have added whatever vegetables I had it on hand and add Vegetarian Chicken in it so its double the flavor and benefits.



Ingredients :

1 cup cooked and dry quinoa
1 Carrot shredded
1/2 cup chopped Red Cabbage
1/2 cup cooked Vegetarian Chicken
2 Chopped green onions - We can use both green and white part
1 Chopped English Cucumber
1 Small Tomato chopped
1/2 cup Boiled Edamame

Dressing :

1/4 cup Tamari Sauce or Ligh Sodium Soya Sauce
1 Tbsp Sesame oil
1 big spoonful of grated ginger
1 tbsp Rice vinegar
As per taste salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes
If you don't want to add red pepper flakes, you can use any Asian flavor Chili sauce
Add salt after tasting the dressing

Method :

Cook the quinoa as per the package directions and keep it aside.

Mix all the chopped vegetables and quinoa. You can add your choice of vegetables too.

Mix all the ingredients for the dressing and keep it aside.

Don't put the dressing if you are not ready to eat and not at all once.

Take little dressing and mix it with the salad when you are ready to eat and if needed more, dressing adds more and enjoy your healthy lunch or dinner without feeling guilty and keep on that New Year resolution to keep fit and I will be there to keep it that way by giving you more healthy recipes.

This tastes good at room temperature.
