This mixed vegetable quinoa salad is delicious and substantial, so can act as a main dish or side dish, and it goes perfectly with this lemon, tahini and mustard dressing. The salad has a mix of different vegetables, plus nuts and seeds for that crunch and protein. Topped with fresh herbs it has a real outdoor eating summer feel!
Cook the quinoa as per the instructions. Put into a large serving dish or salad bowl.
Add all other ingredients and mix in gently except the toasted seeds, smoked paprika and parsley.
Top the mix by sprinkling the toasted seeds, smoked paprika and parsley on the top.
Mix all ingredients together except the extra apple cider vinegar and the extra water.
Depending on how thick / watery you like the dressing, and how much you like the sourness of vinegar, add some extra vinegar and / or water until it is your desired consistency.
