  • ½ pound purple potatoes cut into ½-inch pieces
  • ¼ cup quinoa
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 cups mixed salad greens
  • 2 tablespoons hemp hearts
  • 2 tablespoons raw cashews
  • 2 medium scallions thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh dill

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • Juice of 1 large orange
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated orange zest
