Rocket, Mushroom & Quinoa Salad

Method

Place quinoa and 1½ cups cold water in a saucepan over high heat and cover. 

Once water is boiling reduce heat to low.  Simmer for 10 to 12 minutes or until water has absorbed. Drain in a colander and allow to cool. 

In a large bowl combine olive oil, white balsamic vinegar, sugar, garlic, wholegrain mustard, basil, parsley, salt, pepper and mix very well.  Add sliced white button mushrooms and cherry tomatoes and mix again.  Add quinoa, rocket and enokii mushrooms and mix again to combine.  Taste for seasoning and if required add a little more olive oil.

Place in a large serving bowl, garnishing with extra rocket that has been dressed with olive oil.
