This recipe is back by popular demand. Its a gourmet winner for a Rosh Hashanah lunch or Sukkot.

by Kady Harari -Kady Harari lives in Jerusalem with her husband Joey. She’s a food enthusiast, enjoys shopping at the local shuk (at times up to 3 times a day!) and teaches  “Traditional Syrian Cooking” to seminary girls studying  in Israel in a post high school program. She also owns the most magnificent upscale Jewelry and gift shop in Jerusalem.

When our family visited Israel for a bar-mitzvah recently, Kady had catered a  delicious Shabbat sebet. (Did we mention that she also caters parties in Jerusalem???) We all raved over her quinoa salad . Something about the combo of pistachio nuts, lemon, and pomegrante seeds kept us eating until the whole taboule was wiped out!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe- Kady!

  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed and drained well
  • 2 cups water

    This salad is a hit every time I make it, and I’ve made it several times since the original posting. Guests ask for the recipe and it really couldn’t be easier. I substitute cilantro for the parsley and it’s just divine! Thank you!
