  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2 kumquats--halved, seeded and coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup pure olive oil

  1. 1. In a medium saucepan, combine the quinoa and water and bring to a boil. Simmer over low heat, stirring often, until just tender, about 12 minutes; the grains should be separate and intact. Drain the quinoa and let cool completely.
  2. 2. In a small bowl, combine the kumquats and cilantro with the olive oil, lemon juice and salt and let steep for 5 minutes.
  3. 3. In a large bowl, toss together the quinoa, pear and cucumber. Add the dressing and toss well. Add the watercress and toss again. Serve at once.
