  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1/2 cup macadamia nuts
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1 small green onion, thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup seeded diced cucumber
  • 1 cup diced green apple
  • 1/2 cup diced green bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup diced celery
  • 1/2 red serrano chile, seeded and thinly sliced
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Agave nectar, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons plain yogurt
  • Maldon or other flaky salt



Step 1

1. Prepare the quinoa according to the package directions. Put the drained quinoa back into the pot and stir it over low heat to remove some of the moisture.
2. In a small dry skillet, toast the macadamia nuts over medium-low heat until evenly browned, 3 to 4 minutes, stirring often to keep them from burning. Crush the nuts lightly with a knife.
3. In a large bowl, combine the quinoa, macadamia nuts, and the remaining ingredients. Toss and check for seasoning; add more lemon juice and salt if necessary.
