This is a lovely quinoa salad I like to make in winter. It combines the bright tang of citrus with the sweetness of cooked beetroot.

  1. Prepare the dressing by combining all the ingredients except the oil in a bowl. Slowly pour in the oil while whisking.
  2. Place the quinoa in a saucepan with the water and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer, cover and let cook until the water is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
  3. In a salad bowl combine quinoa, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, orange, avocado, cumquats and beetroot. Toss to combine and drizzle with the dressing.
