Asian stir-fry quinoa salad

This dressing is one of my favorite dressings in the world. The salad it goes with is a delicious wonton chicken salad. The big problem is that my weakness is fried wontons wrappers. I was in the mood to be healthier than that. So I came up with this salad and it was wonderful!

Asian stir-fry quinoa salad

1 c quinoa
1 head broccoli
1 red pepper
2 carrots
Green onions
1/3 c. dry roasted cashews
1/2 c Mandarin oranges

1/3 c oil
3 T sugar
3 T red wine vinegar
1 t salt
1/4 t pepper

Cook quinoa according to package directions. Dice veggies. Stir fry veggies in grapeseed oil. Add cashews for last minute or two. Remove from heat and mix with cooked quinoa. Allow to cool then add Mandarin oranges. While cooling whisk together all the ingredients for the dressing. Pour dressing over salad and mix well. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes (we had leftovers the next day and it was still amazing so I think this could easily be made in the morning or even the day before).

Like any good stir fry the veggies could be mixed up according to what your tastes are, or what you have in your fridge :)
