Salad Ingredients

  • 1 cup dry quinoa
  • ¼ cup chopped green onion
  • ¼ cup chopped red onion
  • 1 cup chopped red pepper
  • 1 cup chopped cucumber
  • 1 cup corn (I buy frozen and thaw it before making)
  • 1 ½ cups chickpeas (no salt added)

Dressing Ingredients

  • ¾ cup water
  • 1 ½ tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 ½ tablespoons tamari (low-sodium)
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 ½ teaspoons lemon juice


  • If using frozen corn, take it out to thaw it.
  • Cook the quinoa on the stove.
  • Prepare the salad dressing while the quinoa cooks: Add all dressing ingredients to a food processor or high-powered blender and blend until smooth.
  • Chop and measure out your vegetables.
  • Once quinoa is cooked, add all salad ingredients to a bowl and mix thoroughly.
  • Pour on the dressing and mix. Cool salad in the fridge before eating.


Store salad in the fridge for up to a week.
