1. Cook quinoa

Put the quinoa in a sieve, then rinse well and drain (see cooking tip). Put the quinoa and 250ml (1 cup) water in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Cover with a lid and reduce the heat to low.

2. Prepare ingredients

Meanwhile, halve the tomatoes. Coarsely chop the basil leaves, discarding the stems.

3. Make dressing

Very finely chop half the shallot (the remaining shallot won’t be used in this dish). Crush the garlic. In a small bowl combine 1½ tbs extra virgin olive oil, 1 tbs balsamic vinegar, ½ tsp honey and season with pepper. Stir in the shallot and garlic.

4. Rinse sprouts

Rinse the Aussie Sprouts Crunchy Combo in a sieve under cold running water. Drain well and put in a large bowl.

5. Combine ingredients

Add the quinoa to the sprouts with the tomatoes, basil and rocket leaves and crumble in half the feta.

6. Get ready to serve

Add the dressing and toss until well combined. Divide the salad among plates. Crumble over the remaining feta to serve.
