A deliciously healthy combination of cooked quinoa and fresh fruit and vegetables. This salad is easy to put together and packed with flavour and texture.

For the salad
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 2 large mangoes, diced
  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • 1 red capsicum, diced
  • 1 green capsicum, diced
  • ¼ - ½ cup fresh coriander, roughly chopped (or to taste)

For the dressing
  • juice of 3 limes
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons honey (more or less to taste)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • fresh limes, for garnish
  1. In a large bowl add all of the salad ingredients and mix thoroughly
  2. In a small bowl add all of the dressing ingredients and stir to mix well.
