Apples & Honey Quinoa Salad

This salad is an easy, fun, and healthy way to enjoy apples and honey this Rosh Hashanah!

Prep time: 15 minutes

Serves: 4

Ingredients for Salad:

  • ¼ cup brown rice
  • ¼ cup quinoa (I used a microwavable brown rice & quinoa blend)
  • 1 15 oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cups arugula
  • 1 granny smith apple, diced
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts
  • ¼ cup pomegranate seeds
  • ¼ cup Feta cheese (optional)

Ingredients for Honey Vinaigrette:

  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Make the rice and quinoa according to the package directions.
  2. While the rice and quinoa are cooking, make the dressing. Mix together all ingredients with a whisk in a medium sized bowl.
  3. In a large bowl, add the cooked rice and quinoa and mix in chickpeas, arugula, diced apple, chopped walnuts and pomegranate seeds.
  4. Toss in dressing and serve immediately!

Tips: you can make the rice and dressing two days before serving. Keep refrigerated.
