We’ve paired classic Thai ingredients with black quinoa for a salad that pops with color, contrast, and flavor – guaranteed to impress your guests!

Serves 6-8


  • 1 cup black Quinoa
  • 2 oranges
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 6 spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 ripe mangoes, peeled, pitted, diced
  • 1 avocado, chopped
  • 1 cup fresh coriander leaves
  • 1/2 cup unsalted, dry-roasted peanuts
  • 2 fresh green, seeded, minced chilies
  • Sea salt


  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp fish sauce – optional


  1. Remove peel and pith from oranges. Using a bowl to catch the juice while you work, remove the skin from segments and chop in half.
  2. Add lime juice, olive oil, and fish sauce to the orange juice bowl and mix. Set aside.
  3. Bring black quinoa and 2 cups of water to a boil in a large saucepan. Season lightly with salt. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer until all liquid is absorbed and quinoa is tender about 20 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile chop up your mangoes, onion, spring onions, chillis, and coriander.
  5. When cooked, remove quinoa from heat and let stand, covered, for 10 minutes.
  6. Fluff with a fork and toss all ingredients together and dress.
  7. Season lightly with salt and more lime juice, if desired.
