Quinoa Salad with Watercress and Rhubarb
This is a recipe I’ve adapted from the cookbook by Heid Erdrich, “Original Local”. It’s easy and delicious. Heid Erdrich's cookbook is terrific and worth checking out at your local library; full of indigenous, local food recipes and wonderful stories. FYI, for those who may be wondering- Heid is the sister of Louise; a great literary talent in her own right.
2 c. cooked quinoa
1/4 c. chopped, watercress
1/2 c. rough chopped asparagus, snap peas, or pea shoots
1/4 c. chopped rhubarb
1 Tbsp. maple syrup
1 Tbsp. fresh mint
1 tsp. sumac, optional
Wash/rinse and pat dry with a towel the watercress and pea shoots.
Combine all ingredients in a serving bowl, and season with salt to your taste.
