We absolutely love this salad. It's really easy to prepare but looks and tastes super sophisticated because it combines some seriously delicious flavours and textures. It's light and fresh but also comforting and wholesome, the perfect in-between season meal when you just don't know what you feel like eating (or how to dress).
We have used Quinoa as our base for this salad. We don't get tired of this superfood as it contains a complete protein profile and is packed with micronutrients. The asparagus provides a source of folate, vitamin C, vitamin E and iron, plus most of your B vitamins. It's a great source of fibre, and antioxidants (including some awesome polyphenol call quercetin). Peaches provide a source of vitamin C, Niacin and antioxidants, but most importantly, they taste amazing and chargrilling them brings out delicious caramel tones (and makes you look really fancy!). Pepitas have been included to provide some crunch, but also for their added protein, vitamins and minerals. And obviously, goat's cheese is added because it's goat's cheese - enough said! (But if you must know, it also provides complete protein, calcium and vitamin A).
