Greens and Quinoa Salad with Currants and Pecans

Greens and Quinoa Salad with Currants and Pecans

This salad can be made with just Quinoa but we liked mixing the greens with a few dollops of Quinoa mixed in.  We dressed the salad with Agave Mustard Vinaigrette but you can just use olive oil and lemon juice if you want to go basic.

1/2       cup cooked Quinoa  (more if not using greens)
            mixed greens
            Persian cucumber
            green onions, diced
            dried cranberries
            pecans  (candy if like sweet)
            vegan Feta  (we used Violife Vegan feta) the texture is softer than dairy Feta

Agave Mustard Vinaigrette
makes 1/2 cup

·       1 clove garlic, minced
·       1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar
·       1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard, (coarse or smooth)
·       1/2 teaspoon agave
·       1/8 teaspoon salt
·       Freshly ground pepper, to taste
·       1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil, or canola oil

·       Whisk garlic, vinegar, mustard, honey, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Slowly whisk in oil.
