Quinoa Cabbage Salad with Mint

Summer cabbage has a light and crispy structure - with a little effort it turns into a tasty salad. I cutted the cabbage into thin stripes, mixed them with the boiled quinoa grains and seasoned the salad with mint and lemon-vinaigrette - easy peasy and so fresh & delicious!

You will need

1 cup (2 dl) raw quinoa (I rinsed quinoa grains properly, and cooked them for 20 min.)
cups (4-5 dl) thinly sliced ​​cabbage
1/4 cup (½ dl) chopped fresh mint

Mix the following ingredients together into a vinaigrette:
1/4 cup (½ dl) canola oil
juice of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon of white balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon of acacia honey / honey
salt and pepper, a small pinch of cayenne pepper

- After the quinoa grains have cooled down, mix them together with the sliced cabbage and chopped fresh mint. Pour the lemon vinaigrette on the top.

Quinoa Cabbage Salad with Mint is a delicious and filling salad, it goes well together with beans, chicken, veal and fish. If you make a double portion, the salad remains fresh in the refrigerator for a few days.

I have enchanged the original recipe by replacing whole wheat grains with quinoa, and I've added balsamic vinegar and honey to the vinaigrette.

The season for fresh cabbage and herbs is at the door!
