For the quinoa salad with white cabbage

  • 380 g white cabbage – remove the stalk; cut the leaves into fine strips
  • 100 g Quinoa Tricolore – wash thoroughly
  • 60 g cranberries, dried
  • 2 tbsp hazelnuts – roughly chop and roast fat-free

For the dressing

  • 4 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp apple syrup
  • 1 tbsp olive oil, cold-pressed
  • 1 tbsp apricot kernel oil (alternatively olive oil)
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 3 tbsp chopped parsley
  • Crystal salt and pepper from the mill

Instructions

With this combination of white cabbage, quinoa, cranberries and hazelnuts, you can conjure up a wonderfully fresh, very tasty quinoa salad in just 30 minutes, which is pleasantly light and still filling for a long time.

Step 1

For the quinoa salad, bring the quinoa to the boil in plenty of vegetable stock and simmer for 15 minutes.

Then pour over a sieve and allow to drain for approx. 10 minutes (to cool).

Step 2

In the meantime, mix lemon juice, vinegar, syrup and mustard in a bowl for the dressing.

Then stir in the olive and apricot kernel oil; salt and pepper.

Step 3

Put the white cabbage in the dressing and gently massage in the dressing by hand (put on a glove!).

Then season with salt and pepper, add the cranberries and parsley and fold in the quinoa.

Mix everything well and season with salt and pepper.

Step 4

Serve the quinoa salad sprinkled with hazelnuts.
