A mixture of shiitake and dried porcini mushrooms in this salad provides a rich, almost meaty flavour that gives neutral quinoa the taste boost that it needs. The result is a substantial salad with vibrant colours, an opulent sesame taste and a very useful profile of vitamins, antioxidants, iron and calcium.
To serve the salad warm, add the dressing to the warm quinoa and vegetables after step 3 and serve with meaty sausages, if you like.
