This salad can stand alone as a great side or as lunch, with or without the quinoa. If you don't have quinoa or want to try a variation, you can substitute brown rice, millet, wild rice or cooked beans.


6 ounces cooked turkey breast, diced into ½-inch squares (purchase turkey breast unsliced)
1 cup cooked quinoa
2 apples, peeled and sliced
8 cups mixed greens
2 scallions, chopped
2 ounces crumbled blue cheese
2 tablespoons slivered almonds
1 cup cherry tomatoes
1 cucumber, peeled, sliced and cut into half moons
½ cup balsamic dressing


Combine the ingredients and serve.

Cooking Tip

It's helpful to buy prerinsed quinoa for convenience. If you don't, you must rinse the quinoa several times before using it. Quinoa contains an outer coating of saponin that is very bitter. Use a fine colander, and rinse the quinoa under cold water.
