Whether he's making a simply delicious salad or creating a cocktail fresh from the garden for Oprah and her friends, Eduardo Chavez knows how to squeeze the very best flavors out of fruits and vegetables.
Active time: 30 minutes
Total time: 1 hour (includes making the dressing)
In a medium pot, bring 1 cup water, broth, quinoa, oil, and salt just to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until liquid is absorbed and quinoa is tender, about 20 minutes. Uncover, fluff with a fork, transfer to a large plate, and set aside to let cool.
In a large bowl, toss together arugula, tomatoes, and 1/4 cup dressing, and then transfer to a large platter. In the same bowl, gently toss together reserved quinoa, chiles, cucumber, onion, and remaining 1/2 cup dressing.
Spoon quinoa mixture over arugula salad, top with cilantro, and serve.
