Canyon Bakehouse Spinach Quinoa Salad with Caraway Croutons

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided

  • 1 teaspoon dried cilantro

  • 6 slices Canyon Bakehouse Caraway Bread, cut into 1/2 inch cubes

  • 2 cups water

  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa

  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach

  • 1 teaspoon honey

  • 3/4 teaspoon curry powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • 2 tablespoons dried cranberries

  • 1/3 cup roughly chopped almonds

  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper


Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

  2. In large bowl combine 2 tablespoons olive oil, cilantro and bread cubes; gently toss to combine until evenly coated. Spread cubes onto a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 15 minutes, then stir the croutons and bake for another 15 minutes until golden brown and crispy.

  3. Remove from oven; set aside to cool.

  4. Bring 2 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan; add quinoa and reduce heat. Simmer for 15 minutes or until quinoa is soft and chewy. Fluff with a fork; set aside to cool.

  5. Meanwhile, steam spinach in a steamer over medium heat. Cook for 4 minutes or until wilted. Drain and set aside.

  6. In a large bowl, whisk honey, curry powder, sea salt, pepper, lemon juice and remaining olive oil in a large bowl. Add quinoa, dried cranberries, spinach, almonds and crushed red pepper; gently toss to combine. Top with croutons and serve.
