This quinoa dill salad is a great addition to any picnic or party. Full of fresh flavors from a lemon dressing and fresh dill, this is sure to please.
Hello! How was Easter weekend? Busy? Fun? Ham-filled? :)
Ours was all three. We had an egg hunt in the yard, and Baby Bee got his first pair of ‘real’ shoes (he’s just barely a size 4! so cute), and we seemed to consume a lot of ham on Sunday and Monday.
Easter dinner was at my parent’s house, and I brought a vegan chocolate cream pie, and also this quinoa salad. Both were so good! I was nervous about the pie because I’d never made it before, and I was making pudding with almond milk and arrowroot powder to accommodate our food sensitivities,but it turned out really well!
I’ve made this salad of Summer’s before, using her exact recipe, and it is so good and fresh tasting. This time I changed it, I was just in the mood for dill and green onion. Here is my version.

Quinoa Dill Salad
- 1 cup quinoa
- 1 cup water
- ½ cup fresh dill
- 1 bunch green onions chopped
- 1 cup baby carrots sliced thin
Rinse your quinoa thoroughly and put in a pan with one cup water. Bring water to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and let simmer 15-20 minutes, or until all the water is absorbed.
While quinoa is cooling, chop dill, green onions and carrots. Combine dressing ingredients in the bottom of your serving dish and whisk.
Add veggies and quinoa and stir. Add more seasoning as needed. Enjoy at room temperature or cold.

Just found your blog and am enjoying it! I just prepared quinoa last night with a recipe we really enjoy. Prepare the quinoa with broth instead of water for more flavor. Sauté onions and peppers then add a can of any kind of tomatoes or chop a few fresh. Add a can of beans either red or black and include your own seasonings of chili powder, garlic, pepper, salt, etc. to your taste. We like it spicy so add hotter peppers or chilies as you like. Simmer down the vegetables and serve over the quinoa. It is so quick and yummy! Thanks for your recipes and sharing your family!
That sounds so delicious! Thank you so much for sharing that recipe! :)
We recently discovered quinoa and I mainly use it as an addition to steamed carrots vegetables. I’ve noticed that it’s best with garlic, so I make sure to crush a clove each time. I will most certainly try this recipe because just like Meeling I love dill, especially fresh one!
I love dill – it’s so fresh and adds a unique quality to salads!
I’ve never had quinoa before, but this looks so fresh and tasty!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today.
