Servings 4 persons



  • 2 orange only the juice
  • 2 tbl spoon honey liquid honey
  • 2 tbl spoon rice vinegar (found in japanese cuisine)
  • ½ tbl spoon chili flakes


  • 140 gr quinoa I used a mix of red and white quinoa
  • 1 mango ripe! (if you buy it unripe, put it under a tea towel for a few days with ripe bananas)
  • ½ apple
  • ½ pomegranate only the seeds
  • 1 tbl spoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • mint leaves to decorate


  • First we will rinse the quinoa well. Heat water in a pan with 1 tbsp olive oil and a little salt. (Amount of water: per part quinoa at least 2 parts water. We pour the excess water away afterwards) Let it boil for 15 – 20 minutes. You will then see the seeds will loose. Pour through a sieve and let cool.
  • While the quinoa is cooling, we make the dressing. Mix all ingredients well with a whisk. (orange juice, honey, rice vinegar and chili flakes) Taste and check whether the proportions are right.
  • Cut and peel the mango. Cut the mango into cubes. Wash the apple, halve and cut into fine slices. I leave the skin on the apple.
    Remove the pomegranate seeds from the pomegranate. Use half for the salad. (put the rest in the fridge and you can use them with your breakfast or other vegetable dishes)
  • Now mix the quinoa with the mango, apple and pomegranate. Drizzle with the dressing and mix again. When serving, sprinkle some extra pomegranate seeds on top and decorate with a few mint leaves. Drizzle again with the dressing.


“What can I prepare with quinoa”? A question I am sometimes asked. For me, quinoa is so versatile that I use it in salads, breakfast or homemade burgers… Now we are in the middle of the mango harvest season and I made a nice fresh salad with sweet ripe mango…
