Quinoa Salad with Golden Berries & Avocado

by | Sep 1, 2021

The great thing about quinoa is that it can be enjoyed with a variety of meal menus. It is nutritious while also being low in carbs. We can enjoy it with porridge, sandwiches, or stews.

Today in my innovative salad recipe, I have used quinoa with golden berries and avocado. I drizzled a spicy dressing made with an abundance of fresh herbs – inspired by Vietnamese cuisine.

Golden berries are similar to tomatillos. They taste tart and also have a sweet flavor. They are nutritious, brimming with minerals and vitamins, and good for immunity.


  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • ½ cup red onion, finely chopped
  • ½ cup fresh coriander, finely chopped
  • 5-6 cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • 2 avocados, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup golden barriers
  • For Salad Dressing:
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 lemon zest
  • 3 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sweet & chili sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 4-5 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 5-6 fresh red Thai red chili
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro, thinly chopped
  • Sea salt as needed

Preparing the salad dressing:

In a bowl, add all the ingredients to make a dipping sauce. Set aside.

Pour cooked quinoa into a serving plate and add all the ingredients mentioned above. Pour two tablespoons of the dressing and mix well until well combined. Serve on a gorgeous platter.
