  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 5-6 green onions, chopped

For the Dressing

  • 1/4 cup Heinen's extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon

  1. Cook the quinoa according to the package. Set aside to cool.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the carrots, bell peppers, radishes, raisins, sliced almonds, cilantro and green onions. Add the quinoa. Gently mix to incorporate.
