Preparation

Pour the quinoa in a strainer and wash it under running waterfor 1 minute. This step is very important otherwise the quinoa would taste bitter.

Put the quinoa in a saucepan and pour the water. Add a little salt, cover with a lid and bring to boil over a low heat. Let simmer until the water is completely absorbed. Turn off the heat and let cool completely. Pour the olive oil, stir and set aside.

Put in a bowl the asparagus chicory, the ginger, the sliced strawberries, tomatoes and radishes. Add the quinoa and mix. Serve your spring quinoa salad with a sprinkle of black sesame seeds.
