2 cups water

1 cup quinoa

1 cup halved red grapes

1/2 cup Sunsweet® Plum Amazins

1/2 cup each: thinly sliced celery, green onions and chopped toasted walnuts


1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/4 cup red wine vinegar

1 tbsp honey

1/2 tsp salt, or to taste

1 clove garlic, minced

Freshly ground pepper to taste


Rinse quinoa in a fine mesh strainer; drain well. Bring water and quinoa to a boil in a medium saucepan; reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 12 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes, then fluff with a fork and let cool. Place in a large bowl with remaining salad ingredients. Whisk together all dressing ingredients and pour over salad; toss well to coat. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour. Makes 6 servings.

Recipe tip: Salad may be made 1 day ahead of serving. Add walnuts just before serving.
