Elins salmon quinoa salad
On friday night I went to Luzern for a wonderful girly evening with my lovely Elin. We went shopping in the rain with no real plans, but came back with alot of nice things...for example the ingredients for this smoked salmon and quinoa salad. Very good for you but still festive enough to be a Friday dinner.
You'll need (for 2)
150-200 grams of smoked salmon, finely sliced
2 servings of red quinoa
1 stalk of broccoli
1-2 handfuls of green leafs of choice
1 handful of cherry tomatoes
5 mini pickled cucumbers (if you like them)
1 handful of pumpkin seeds
A few sun dried tomatoes
Fresh basil, lemon, olive oil
Salt and pepper
1. Prepare quinoa according to the package and let cool off slightly
2. Chop up the vegetables.
3. Gently fry the broccoli for a milder taste along with the pumpkin seeds
3. Toss together
4. Drizzle with olive oil, fresh lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with avocado cream and some wine if you like.
