Asian Style Quinoa Salad ft. Sexy Green Goddess

Asian Style Quinoa Salad ft. Sexy Green Goddess

I’ve never been a fan of scoring my food, but rather, I’m the type of person who rates food based on how many times I can eat it in a week. 

This spicy quinoa salad is made great with a 4 ingredient sauce by simply blooming hot coconut oil over our signature green goddess, thinly sliced lime leaves & red chili. the result is a fragrant sauce that will coat and permeate your quinoa without leaving it too oily.

The sauce features Loaded Gun's signature Cilantro Avo Cashew Lime Sauce and you can purchase it here.

1 cup quinoa
1/2 a cucumber, diced
red radish, thinly sliced

you can use whatever vegetables you want but the quinoa is a great base which I highly recommend. quinoa is an ancient grain with a great protein & fibre content.


2 tablespoons Sexy Green Goddess (Loaded Gun’s signature Cilantro Avo Cashew Sauce
8 lime leaves, thinly sliced
5 big red chillies, thinly sliced (you can use a mix of chili padi if you like it super hawt)
2 tablespoons coconut oil, heated 


  1. Soak quinoa overnight, this helps remove the bitter taste from the outer husk of the quinoa (don’t skip this step)
  2. Cook in normal white rice setting. The texture should yield a grain that has bite with a little pop & chew.
  3. Dice your cucumbers & slice red radish. 
  4. For the sauce, heat up coconut oil until it shimmers & make sure it is smoking hot otherwise your ingredients will not bloom!!!
  5. Pour the hot oil over the rest of the sauce ingredients
  6. Use gloves and massage the oil into the salad or just with a spoon
  7. We used crushed crispy chickpeas & thai basil leaves to top off this luscious salad. You can also top it off with furikake or roasted peanuts, anything crunchy of your choice would work!

Bon appetit 🤍
