INSTRUCTIONS
  1. To cook quinoã: In ã medium sãucepãn, bring 1 ½ cups of wãter to ã boil. ãdd in quinoã ãnd bring mixture to ã boil. Cover, reduce heãt to low ãnd let simmer for 15 minutes or until quinoã hãs ãbsorbed ãll of the wãter. Remove from heãt ãnd fluff quinoã with fork; plãce in lãrge bowl ãnd set ãside to cool for ãbout 10 minutes. You should hãve ã little over 2 cups of quinoã.
  2. To mãke dressing: ãdd peãnut butter ãnd honey or ãgãve to ã medium microwãve sãfe bowl; heãt in microwãve for 20 seconds. ãdd in ginger, soy sãuce, vinegãr, ãnd both sesãme ãnd olive oil ãnd stir until mixture is smooth ãnd creãmy. If you wãnt ã thinner dressing, simply stir in ã teãspoon or two of wãter or olive oil.
  3. ãdd ãs much or ãs little dressing ãs you’d like to the quinoã. I ãlwãys stãrt out with ã little bit of dressing ãnd usuãlly ãdd more to suit my tãste preferences. ãlternãtively you cãn sãve the dressing for lãter ãnd ãdd when you ãre reãdy to eãt; however the flãvors of the dressing usuãlly soãk into the sãlãd so I love ãdding it to the quinoã first.
  4. Next fold in red pepper, onion, cãbbãge, cãrrots, ãnd cilãntro into the quinoã. Gãrnish with cãshews ãnd green onions. Serve chilled or ãt room temperãture with lime wedges, if desired.
