Radish, Quinoa & Microgreen Salad


  • 1/2 cup quinoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups microgreens or baby greens, such as arugula
  • 1/2 cup sliced radishes
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt


Rinse and drain quinoa. Add quinoa, 1 cup water & salt to a saucepan. Bring to a boil than reduce to simmer. Cook until liquid absorbs, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit, covered, for 5 minutes before fluffing with a fork. Spread quinoa out to dry on a plate or cutting board.

In a bowl, mix together all other ingredients, excluding the micro-greens. Toss in the cooled quinoa. Taste and add more seasonings, as needed. Top with micro greens & enjoy!
