I made this salad for Christmas and it was a hit. I have made it again since and it was well received as well so I thought I would share it with you all as well.
Super Summer Salad
1 Cup of Cooked and Cooled Quinoa
A few handfuls of Rocket
1/2 Lebanese Cucumber
1/2 Avocado Diced
2 Nectarines Sliced
1/4 Cup of chopped Pistachios
2 parts Olive Oil
1 part Balsamic Reduction/Glaze
Pinch of Salt
To assemble layer the ingredients in the order listed. You can make up the quantities for everything as you go along, to your taste or based on the number of people you are catering for.
Just before serving whisk together the dressing ingredients and pour over the salad. You can use balsamic vinegar instead of the sweeter reduction or glaze but I like the contrast of the sweeter dressing against the saltiness of the feta.
