Ann Posen’s Yardage Sale Quinoa Salad

Serves 4-6

¾ cup tricolour quinoa

1½ cups water

1 cup each finely diced red and yellow sweet pepper

1 cup currants

1 cup dried apricots, finely chopped

1 bunch green onions, finely chopped

½ cup each finely chopped cilantro and parsley

½ cup sunflower seeds


1/3 cup lemon juice

½ cup olive oil

1 tsp fresh garlic, minced

½ tsp salt

Pinch of cayenne, turmeric, cumin

Rinse the quinoa and cook in water for 10-15 minutes. Let stand. Fluff with a fork. Add peppers, currants, apricots, green onions, cilantro, parsley and sunflower seeds to quinoa. Mix dressing and toss with salad. This salad is better if it stands a few hours or overnight. Don’t be afraid to be liberal with the spices.
