Method

  1. Make salad dressing by combining the first 9 ingredients, except oil for brushing, in a jar. Seal jar and set dressing aside until needed. 
  2. Place the quinoa and water in a medium pot and bring to a boil over high heat. Cover the pot and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook the quinoa, undisturbed, for 15 minutes, or until just tender and the water has evaporated. Spoon the cooked quinoa into a large salad bowl and allow to cool to room temperature. 
  3.  Preheat your indoor grill or barbecue to medium-high. Slice the pineapple into 4 equal rings. Brush each pineapple ring lightly with oil, and then grill 1 to 2 minute per side, or until nicely coloured. Set rings on a plate; cool to room temperature. Now cut each ring into 6 to 8 pieces.  
  4. Add the pineapple, salad dressing and all remaining to the quinoa and toss to combine. Cover and refrigerate salad until ready to serve. 
Note: Peeled, cored, half and whole pieces of fresh-cut pineapple are available in our Produce Department.
