Quinoa Salad with Preserved Lemon

Earlier this year I made a few jars of preserved lemons and limes.

Looking for a way to use some of my preserved citrus I thought a salad was in order.

I love quinoa and knew that would be the perfect base for a salad. Full of fresh avocado and roasted peppers it was a refreshing satisfying meal. The salty hit of citrus is the prefect finish to the dish. It is quick, simple and delicious!

    1. The lemons are super easy to make and with it being citrus season it is the perfect time to make a few jars. I have Meyer Lemons on sale at work I should probably do a jar of those as well.

  1. Like you I’m crazy about preserved lemons. I usually add them to hot dishes so thanks for this suggestion of a cold salad. Reading through the comments I see that you preserved limes too! I must try that. I often preserve meyer lemons since the skins are nice & thin, but limes I have never tried.
