Sausage, Quinoa, Spinach and Lettuce Salad….and slugs in the garden! — 9 Comments

  1. Hi Katie – perfect timing as I’m just writing the round up now 😉 This looks like a very tasty dish indeed – fresh, tasty, wholesome and filling 😀 Thanks for submitting to this week’s edition of WHB!

  2. I am really loving the fresh oregano too. I just got an interesting plant called Golden Oregano that has yellowish leaves and a slightly milder flavor. It’s really good too. The salad sounds good. Love the sound of the herb dressing especially.

  3. Katie, YUM! This recipe looks great — I’m always looking for fun ways to use quinoa.
    And now I’m going to go hide, since I’m such a big nerd as to say “always looking for fun ways to use quinoa…” Yikes. 🙂

  4. I need to go hide with Kalyn because I too, am always looking for new ways to serve quinoa. I love both oregano and marjoram and both of them dies back while my thyme is doing incredibly well. BTW, you had one of the best looking dishes in the round-up. I wonder how it would be without the sausage?

  5. What a great looking dish, I envy you. Thanks for another recipe with quinoa, it´s a must try for me! 🙂

  6. I love oregano it is one of my favorite herbs. It is very lemony and herbacious, which sounds like an obvious word to describe an herb, but alas, I feel it is more herbal than a lot. So bring on the Oregano! Mine is still just sprouting! I can’t wait til I can use it!

  7. Thanks, Ellie. Glad a made the cut. Great round-up!
    Kalyn, the golden oregano sounds so pretty! I’m just so happy to be eating fresh herbs again!
    Genie, your fellow foodies understand….
    Gattina, it’s not easy finding the positive about slugs.
    Thanks, Jann
    Thanks, pookah, I think it would be great – chicken, turkey, white beans or nothing. I’m happy with the quinoa!
    Helene, I just ‘discovered’ quinoa this winter so I’m doing lots of experimenting.
    Jenn, good luck with your oregano. Even in the frozen north (Minnesota) mine came up every year. Here it doesn’t die back at all – just goes dormant.
