  • 1 tablespoon unrefined sesame seed oil
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 4 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons coconut aminos
  • 2 tablespoons fresh ginger, grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cups cooked quinoa, kept warm or reheated
  • 5 sheets of nori, toasted and torn into strips or squares

  • 4 ounces carrots, grated or peeled into ribbons
  • 1 bunch of green onions, sliced
  • Optional: 1/4 cup sesame seeds, toasted

  1. Whisk together the oil, lemon juice, vinegar, soy sauce, ginger and black pepper. Place the warm quinoa in a large serving bowl.
  2. Add the squares of nori a few at a time, gently stirring to wilt them and being careful that they don’t clump up. Add all the spinach and stir to wilt, too.
  3. Mix in the carrots, green onions, sesame seeds and salmon and then drizzle the dressing over and toss gently. Serve warm.
