Quinoa Cabbage Salad with Mint
Summer cabbage has a light and crispy structure - with a little effort it turns to a tasty salad. I cutted the cabbage into thin strips, added the boiled quinoa grains and seasoned the salad withfresh mint and lemon-vinegrette - easy peasy and so fresh & delicious!
Quinoa Cabbage Salad with Mint
You will need
1 cup (2 dl) raw quinoa (1 rinsed quinoa properly, and then cooked it ca. 20 min.)
cups (4-5 dl) thinly sliced ​​cabbage
1/4 cup (½ dl) chopped fresh mint
Mix the following ingredients together into a vinegrette:
1/4 cup (½ dl) canola oil
juice of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon of white balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon of acacia honey / honey
salt and pepper, a small pinch of cayenne pepper
- After the quinoa grains have cooled down, mix them together with the sliced cabbage and chopped fresh mint. Pour the lemon vinegrette on the top.
Quinoa cabbage Salad with mint is a delicious and filling salad, it goes well together with beans, chicken, veal and fish. If you make a double portion, the salad remains fresh in the refrigerator a few days.
I have enchanged the original recipe by replacing the whole wheat grains with quinoa, and I've added balsamic vinegar and honey to the vinegrette

The season for fresh cabbage and herbs is at the door!
