Golden chickpeas and cauliflower give this salad a rich, earthy taste that matches well with the nutty quinoa.
Boston lettuce offers a delicate contrast to crunchy snap peas and pecans, soft peaches and tender red peppers. The sriracha-laced balsamic vinaigrette adds a lovely burst of heat that stands as a counterpoint to the sweet peaches.
The textural appeal of this yummy salad — the crunch of the cabbage, the tender bite of the squash and the rich meatiness of the shrimp — makes it an amazing one-dish meal. Choose a crisp, sweet-tart apple for this salad, such as an organic Honeycrisp, Braeburn or Jonagold. This salad pairs beautifully with the warm, sweet flavor of our Sweet Maple Sesame Dressing.
Ahiflower oil is packed with omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. It's delicate, so avoid heating it—like we do in this recipe with spicy, Spanish no-cook romesco sauce.
