(NC) - Nutritious and delicious, this recipe is made with California Walnuts and quinoa, the ancient grain of the Incas. Quinoa was so highly revered for its nourishing and delicious qualities that it was called the Mother Grain. This salad is an excellent source of vitamins A, C, and B6, folacin, magnesium, iron, zinc and a good source of thiamine, riboflavin and niacin.
In medium bowl, whisk together yogurt, lime juice, ginger, curry, salt, pepper and oil. Set aside. Salad: Add quinoa to a large saucepan of boiling salted water. Cook 10 minutes.
Pour quinoa into a fine strainer, reserving cooking liquid. Return cooking liquid to pan and place quinoa, in strainer, over cooking liquid. Cover with lid or foil and continue to steam about 10 minutes more or until quinoa is tender. Let cool.
In bowl, combine quinoa and dressing until well combined. Gently stir in mango, red pepper, green onion, chilies, mint and walnuts.
