Broccoli & Quinoa Salad

Serves 2 meals or 4 sides.



  1. Place a large pot of water over high heat to boil. Once boiling, place broccoli in a steaming basket above boiling water to steam for 10 to 12 minutes. If you want the broccoli cooked but still firm, set it aside a let cool.

  2. Slice the red apple into thin match sticks

  3. Once broccoli and quinoa are both cool, add all ingredients into a bowl and mix. Drizzle with vinaigrette and serve.


  • Cut each broccoli floret into about 3 or 4 pieces. You want them small and manageable.
  • Don’t mix or dress salad while broccoli or quinoa is still hot.
  • You can swap almonds for pecans or walnuts, and you could also add dried fruit like cranberry or raisin to this salad.
  • One meal; Salads can often be a big ask for children, particularly younger children. I usually serve this in a deconstructed manner for young children. This way, I achieve better results with children’s interest and likely consumption of some/all of the ingredients.
