  2. In a skillet, sauté the shrimp in the oil over medium heat, until they change colour. Season with salt and pepper. Let cool.
  3. In a bowl, combine the quinoa, shrimp, cucumber, grapefruit, green onions, pepper, cilantro, and parsley. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.


  1. In a bowl, combine all the ingredients. Drizzle over the salad, toss and let stand for 30 minutes before serving.


This salad is best the same day. Quinoa is a cereal sold mostly in health food stores. Ask for it at your supermarket.


Whether to bring them to a picnic, to eat outside, or to serve on a buffet, dishes containing cream or other dairy products, eggs, mayonnaise, meat, fish, or poultry must be kept no longer than 2 hours at room temperature. This standing time is even shorter when the food is exposed the hot summer days. Do not forget to place an ice pack in your picnic basket.


  1. I haven't made this myself yet, but had it at a friend's house and loved it. I only hope it tastes as delicious when I make it myelf.
