2 large handfuls quinoa

1 lemon, juice only

3 oranges, 2 juice only, 1 left whole

couple glugs fruity olive oil

salt and freshly ground black pepper

handful chicken meat from a leftover organic roast chicken

handful chopped fresh chives

handful fresh basil leaves, more if you fancy

For the salad

Slices red capsicum

½ cucumber diced

Romano lettuce


Put the quinoa in a bowl and pour over some boiling water (it should cover the grains by a couple of centimetres or so). Leave for about 15 minutes, until the quinoa has absorbed the liquid.

In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the lemon juice and the orange juice with the olive oil and season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper, adding more olive oil if desired.

Pour the dressing over the cooked quinoa and let it soak the dressing up for about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, peel the remaining orange by cutting the ends off, placing it on a chopping board and cutting down the sides with a sharp knife to remove the skin and pith. Cut the orange into good-sized chunks.

Add the orange chunks, chicken and herbs to the quinoa and mix gently. Don't over-mix; it's about a lightness of touch.

Divide the salad between two plates or shallow dishes and then gently top each with the chicken quinoa salad.
