Nutty Mandarin Quinoa Salad

Just make it. That's all I have to say. My work is done here. 


  • 2 cups quinoa, dried
  • 1 cup golden raisins
  • 1 cup peanuts, toasted
  • 1 can mandarin oranges, cut in half
  • 3 tablespoons mint leaves, chopped
  • a dash of toasted sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • salt to taste
Cook your quinoa in 4 cups boiling water, and turn down to a low simmer, cover. When all water has been absorbed, transfer quinoa to a cookie sheet and spread out until fully cooled. Toast your peanuts lightly in a frying pan and let cool as well. 

Add all your ingredients together in a large mixing bowl and toss lightly. Add some mandarin orange juice and sesame seeds if you like. Enjoy, it won't last long!
