It has been a dark winter here in London Ontario, but this salad is pretty nonetheless and packed with lots of protein. So that might cheer you up. I know it’s soup season really, but I was craving salad and this one has everything you need. Each bite is a taste experience. Included along with the nutty quinoa and buttery soft chickpeas are lightly toasted cashews, tangy sun-dried tomatoes and tart dried cherries. I dressed up all that goodness with olive oil, red wine vinegar, manuka honey, some freshly squeezed orange juice and a bit of spice.
