Peach, Radicchio and Quinoa Salad, page 150

The bold colors of this orange, purple and green salad are only outmatched by the dazzling combination of sweet, bitter and fresh. It’s grand summer fare.

Makes 6 side-dish servings

Ingredients:
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil   45 mL
1 1⁄2 tbsp sherry vinegar   22 mL
1⁄2 tsp Dijon mustard   2 mL
Fine sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper
2 cups cooked quinoa (see page 15), cooled 500 mL
2 large firm-ripe peaches, peeled and diced
1  head radicchio, coarsely chopped
1 cup packed fresh flat-leaf (Italian) parsley   250 mL
1⁄4 cup chopped toasted walnuts   60 mL

Directions:

1.   In a small bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar and mustard. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

2.   In a large bowl, combine quinoa, peaches, radicchio and parsley. Add dressing and gently toss to coat. Sprinkle with walnuts.

Tips
Cooked amaranth, millet, brown rice or sorghum, cooled, can be used in place of the quinoa.

When peaches are not in season, use two 10-oz (284 mL) cans of mandarin oranges, drained and coarsely chopped, in their place.

Chopped toasted pecans or roughly chopped toasted green pumpkin seeds (pepitas) or sunflower seeds can be used in place of the walnuts.
