California Quinoa Salad

This is an interesting combination I was curious to try because it has received great reviews.  It is a copycat recipe from Whole Foods.  I am glad I tried it, it is really good.  This makes a large portion, consider making 1/2 a batch the first time to make sure you like it :) -Kristin

2 cups quinoa, cooked according to directions
1 package frozen mango, thawed (or 2-4 diced fresh mangos)
1/2 large red onion, diced
1 medium red pepper, diced
1 small bunch cilantro, chopped
1-2 cups shredded, unsweetened coconut
3/4 - 1 cup slivered almonds, toasted
1 - 1 1/2 cup raisins
2-3 cups frozen edamame, thawed
Juice of 4-5 limes
3-4 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar

  • When quinoa finishes cooking, fluff with fork and cool completely.
  • Then add all ingredients together.
  • Enjoy cold.
