Crunchy Cashew Thai Quinoa Salad with Peanut Ginger Dressing

I really like these flavors together! Such a fun looking colorful bowl to look at for a lunch time meal too.


3/4 cup quinoa, uncooked
1 1/2 chicken broth
1 cup shredded red cabbage
1 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 cup red onion, diced
1 cup shredded carrot
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1 cup shelled edamame
1/4 cup cashews, roughly chopped

Dressing:
1/4 cup all natural peanut butter
1 TBS honey
2 tsp grated ginger
3 TBS soy sauce
1 TBS red wine vinegar
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp olive oil

Boil chicken broth and add quinoa. Cook 15-20 minutes until done. Let stand for 30 minutes or so, then put in a container and put into fridge to cool. When you are ready to assemble the salad, put the peanut butter and honey into a bowl and microwave for about 20 seconds. Then add the rest of the ingredients for the dressing and whisk to combine. Pour over cooked and cooled quinoa and stir to combine. Add the rest of the salad ingredients. Serve! Makes about 6 servings.
