  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 1 ⅔ cup chicken broth
  • 1 bunch chopped scallions green onions
  • 1 sliced fennel bulb save the green fronds
  • 1 orange -- peeled and cut into segments
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • crumbled goat cheese or if you prefer-- feta

Instructions

  • Cook quinoa in simmering broth, covered, about 15 minutes, let cool.
  • Toss with chopped scallions, the sliced fennel bulb, the segments from the orange.
  • Mix the olive oil, orange juice, salt and pepper together in a small measuring cup then add it to the salad and mix thoroughly. Let rest about an hour so that the flavors can meld.

Notes

  • I removed the white membrane on the orange with my very sharp zester/peeler and then I cut the orange into segments.
