3 green onions, thinly sliced
1/2 cup walnut pieces, toasted
1 teaspoon pomegranate syrup or honey
1/2 teaspoon whole grain mustard
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar or sherry vinegar
Kosher salt, to taste
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
1/4 cup walnut oil or olive oil
2/3 cup crumbled feta cheese or fresh goat cheese
1. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add quinoa and boil until it is translucent but still has a bit of crunch, about 10 minutes. Drain and spread out on a baking sheet to cool.
2. Combine the quinoa with the chickpeas, fruit, green onions and walnuts in a large serving bowl.
3. In a small bowl, combine the syrup, mustard, vinegar and salt and pepper to taste. Slowly whisk in the walnut oil. Add the dressing to the salad and toss with a little more salt and pepper to taste.
4. Serve immediately or chill, covered tightly, for several hours or overnight. Top with the cheese right before serving.
