Quinoa and Pumpkin Salad

Quinoa Salad is a very versatile dish. You can pretty much change the ingredients every time and you won't be disappointed.

The salad pictured above has the following ingredients in it:

  • 1 cup of quinoa cooked as per the packet directions
  • 2 green capsicums
  • half a pumpkin- roasted and cooled
  • a few handfuls of baby spinach
  • some fetta cheese crumbled through it

I mixed a dressing of olive oil, honey, red wine vinegar and ground cumin to serve over it and it was delicious.

These were just the vegetables that I had on hand on the day and next time no doubt it will be a little different. I would have like to include some roasted zucchini as well, but we were all out.

Do you love quinoa? How do you serve it?


  1. I like this kind of salad Amy. I'll roast some pumpkin tonight to make this tomorrow.

  2. Hi Amy, I've had this a couple times since you've posted it and it's delicious. I'm featuring it at tomorrow's Thriving on Thursday.
