Corn & Quinoa Salad

Recipe by

This should be enough for a side dish for 4-6.

  • 1 cob corn
  • 1 small red capsicum
  • 1/2 cup red quinoa
  • baby cos leaves – about half a lettuce depending on how big they are.
  • 1/4 cup coriander leaves, roughly chopped
  • For the dressing
  • juice of half a lime
  • 2 small red chillies, seeds removed & finely diced.
  • 2 tbslp extra virgin olive oil
  1. Cook the quinoa in 1 cup of water in a small saucepan with the lid on.  All the liquid should evaporate. Separate the grains with a fork and spread out to cool/dry whilst you get on with the rest of the preparation.
  2. Slice the sides off the capsicum and cook on a hot grill pan or BBQ for 2 minutes then turn and cook for a further 2 minutes.  You want the capsicum softened but still quite firm.  Remove and once cool, roughly chop into 1cm dice.
  3. Remove the outer husk and silk from the corn.  You have a couple of option for cooking it.  If your BBQ is on, cook it over the grill, turning regularly for about 10 minutes.  If you are cooking inside I tend to put it in the microwave on high for 4 minutes.  Don’t overcook it.  Overcooked corn loses it beautiful sweetness and takes on a less than fabulous texture.  Remove the kernels from the cob with a knife.
  4. Roughly chop the cos leaves and place in a large bowl with the quinoa, corn, capsicum and coriander leaves.  Gently toss through to combine then pile on a flat plate.  Combine dressing ingredients and drizzle over the top.
