Quinoa salad with apple and grape

20 - 30 mins

Grain-based salads are filling and nutritious, and work really well with fresh fruit, which adds colour, texture and taste.

Cook’s tip: Other grains can be used – try couscous or brown rice. Choose apples with a tart, fresh flavour and pretty green or red skins.

Use up: Grapes, apples

Variations: All kinds of fresh fruit work well in a grain-based salad – try a citrus variation with orange and grapefruit segments.

Extra flavour: A drizzle of pomegranate molasses is wonderful on this salad.

Vegetarians might like to add some crumbled feta cheese.

Allergy advice: Depending on the grain used, this dish may contain gluten.
