  • STEP 1

    Cook quinoa according to package directions, and set aside in a wide salad bowl to cool. Add the raisins while the quinoa is still warm so they plump up.

  • STEP 2

    Once cooled, add the chickpeas, parsley, feta and apple.

  • STEP 3

    Shake the olive oil, vinegar, honey and curry together in a jar, and drizzle over the quinoa salad. Toss, then sprinkle with nuts just before serving.
