For the salad

  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup fresh peas
  • 1 cup sliced radishes
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint

For the lemon vinaigrette

  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


  1. In a medium saucepan, bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Add the quinoa and reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the quinoa is tender. Fluff with a fork and let cool to room temperature.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the cooled quinoa, fresh peas, sliced radishes, chopped parsley, and chopped mint.
  3. To make the lemon vinaigrette, whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, honey, and Dijon mustard in a small bowl. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste.
  4. Drizzle the lemon vinaigrette over the salad and toss gently to combine.
  5. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
