Fresh Summer Quinoa Salad with Mangoes

  • Prep Time: 15 mins
  • Cook Time: 15 mins
  • Total Time: 30 mins
  • Yield: 4 as a side 1x



  • 1/2 cup red quinoa, uncooked and rinsed
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 large mango
  • 1 large handful spinach
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 2 green onions

For the dressing:

  • 1 Tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin


  1. Combine the quinoa and water in a small pot on the stove. Bring to a bowl, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes or until all the water is absorbed.
  2. While the quinoa is cooking, prepare your other ingredients: chop the mango, roughly the chop spinach, and slice the green onions.
  3. Add all dressing ingredients to a small jar and vigorously shake to combine.
  4. When the quinoa is done and cooled (you can rinse the cooked quinoa to bring the temp down), combine all ingredients in a bowl, cover with dressing, and toss to combine.
