  2. 1 large shredded carrot
  3. ½ cup toasted pumpkin seeds
  4. 3-4 large kale leaves finely chopped
  5. ½ red onion finely chopped (Use the green part of green onions instead of the red onion for a Low FODMAP version)
  6. Juice of 2 lemons
  7. Olive oil to taste (around ¼ cup, maybe less)
  8. Sea salt to taste (start with 2-3 tsp)
  9. Freshly ground pepper to taste
  10. Freshly chopped seasonal herbs (parsley, basil, thyme etc)
  1. In a large bowl mix the cooked, cooled quinoa with the carrot, pumpkin seeds, kale and red onion.
  2. In a separate container mix lemon juice, olive oil, sea salt and ground pepper.
  3. Drizzle the dressing over quinoa mixture and taste.
  4. Feel free to add more salt, cayenne pepper or fresh herbs that are in season. Try fresh basil in the summer or parsley in the spring or fall to add a nice zest.
