Quinoa, Asparagus, Orange and Almond Salad

This is an adaptation of Dorie Greenspan's Quinoa, Fruit and Nut Salad, which calls for your choice of various dried fruits, nuts, herbs and greens. Dorie adds a touch of ground ginger to the lemon juice and olive oil dressing, and tops the quinoa with yogurt. I went more savory with ours, using toasted almonds, fresh orange supremes, asparagus, spinach, and parsley, and served it with pan-grilled lamb chops and harissa sauce, a recipe from Tyler's Ultimate: Brilliant Simple Food to Make Any Time.  See recipes at There's a Newf in My Soup!
