Our asparagus, quinoa and smoked salmon salad is an example of how delicious healthy meals can be! When asparagus is out of season, try substituting for snow peas or sliced courgettes 

Tip: Whisk together an easy dressing of ¼ cup Pams Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, 1 teaspoon of Pams Wholegrain Mustard and 1 teaspoon of Pams White Sugar. Season with salt and pepper, then pour on your salad – yum! 

Prep time: 5 minutes 

Cook time: 25 minutes 

Ingredients 

  • 1 cup Pams Superfoods Red Quinoa 
  • 1 bunch Pams Asparagus, ends snapped off 
  • Large handful Pams Baby Spinach 
  • 2-3 Pams Spring Onions, finely sliced 
  • 100g Pams Cold Smoked Salmon 

Directions 

  1. Cook the quinoa according to the packet instructions.
