This is a delicious quinoa recipe that we served with our garlic lime grilled pork chops. This is flavorful enough that you'll want to serve it with a relatively simple grilled dish. It would go wonderfully with grilled fish, chicken, or steak. Or try it with the pork recipe linked below.

  1. Whisk together lime zest and juice, butter, oil, sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper in a large bowl.
  2. Wash quinoa thoroughly in 3 rinses. Cook quinoa in a medium pot of boiling salted water (1 tablespoon salt for 2 quarts water), uncovered, until tender, about 12 minutes. Cover quinoa with a folded kitchen towel, and let stand, covered with towel, 5-10 minutes.
  3. Add quinoa to dressing bowl and toss until dressing is absorbed, then stir in remaining ingredients and salt and pepper to taste.

    I don't universally love quinoa, but I found this one delicious. It reminded me of the rice salads I've been served in the south of France. Delicious and fully flavored, but not over powering.
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!
