Quinoa Salad with Tahini Dressing



Tahini vinaigrette dressing

  • 7 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 2 tbsp apple syrup
  • 1-1.5 cloves of garlic (minced)
  • ½ - 1 tbsp of Dijon mustard
  • 1tsp salt
  • 11 tbsp sunflower oil (or whichever oil you prefer to use)


Quinoa Salad:

  • 250g tahini dressing (above)
  • 750g pumpkin seeds
  • 500g salad mix – shredded (we use a mix of seasonally available: kale, carrot, mung bean sprouts, fennel, capsicum, beetroot, asparagus)
  • 100g uncooked red quinoa 



  • Rinse the quinoa before cooking under a cold tap for about 2mins. Move the quinoa around to ensure it is fully rinsed. 
  • Pour quinoa into a pan and add 250ml water. Bring to the boil and let simmer for 15mins. When cooked, remove from heat and place in a bowl. 
  • Next, take all of the dressing ingredients and blend together until they form a smooth liquid. 
  • When the quinoa is cooled, mix it in to the shredded salad mix, then add pumpkin seeds and thoroughly mix in the dressing.
