  • 1.5 cup uncooked black quinoa
  • 3 cups water
  • 1.5 cup green chickpeas or boiled chickpeas
  • 2 kiwi chopped
  • ¼ cup Walnuts
  • cup soft Feta cheese
  • 2-3 Tbsp dried parsley

  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • teaspoon ½sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • To cook the quinoa, rinse it first and then cook it a saucepan along with water. Once the water starts to boil bring the heat to lowest and allow it to simmer until quinoa absorbs all the water. It will take 12-15 minutes depending on heat levels. Cover the pan with lid and leave it for 5 minutes, Fluff the quinoa with a fork.
  • Allow it to cool before adding it to the salad. I always cook quinoa before and keep it in the fridge.
  • In a mixing bowl combine green chickpeas, Kiwi, ½ of pomegranate pearls coriander leaves etc. Keep it aside.
  • In a small bowl or small jar combine the olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar, seas salt, black pepper and chilli flakes. Whisk/shake until blended.
  • In the mixing bowl add quinoa and toss the salad gently.
  • Pour the salad dressing over the salad ingredients and mix gently.
  • Allow the flavours to marinate for 5-10 minutes in the refrigerator.
  • Top it with remains pomegranate pearls and feta just before serving it.
