tips

  • If you don’t have any maple syrup, increase the honey to 1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) and add a few drops of maple extract if you wish.
  • Wash and chop apples just before serving this salad or you can prepare ahead of time and toss the apples with 2 tsp (10 mL) lemon juice to prevent browning.
  • You can also use cooked brown rice, barley, farro or couscous in place of the quinoa.
