Cook 2 cups using package instructions. (I cook my quinoa with chicken broth instead of water to give it even more flavor)
1/2 cup cashews halved
1 cup green grapes halved
1 can mandarin oranges drained
1 med red onion chopped
1/2 chopped sweet yellow pepper
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 cup cooked Chicken(I use rotisserie chicken)

Top with Newman’s Own or a Raspberry vinaigrette dressing. Arrange on fresh spinach leaves. Garnish with avocado slices.
Note: My dear friend Phyllis Stanley introduced me to her Chicken Quinoa Salad. Phyllis has great information on cooking with grains and pressure cookers on her site www.breadbakingsupplies.comIf you ever encounter a life-giving woman, you’ll remember her. She exudes encouragement and power and inspires you to become the person you were meant to be. Restorative life-giving actions are being lived out daily in the lives of ordinary women.
