How to Make It

Step 1    

In a fine mesh sieve, rinse the quinoa under cold water and strain. Combine the quinoa, water and salt in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce the heat, and gently simmer for 10-12 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer the quinoa to a fine mesh sieve to strain out the remaining cooking liquid. Spread onto a baking sheet in one even layer and refrigerate until it has chilled, about 25 minutes.

Step 2    

Squeeze about 2 tablespoons of juice from half of an orange for the dressing and reserve. Peel the remaining oranges, making sure to remove the bitter white pith, and slice them thinly about a 1/4 inch thick and set aside.

Step 3    

In a large bowl, whisk the orange juice, vinegar, honey, and olive oil together; season generously with salt and pepper. Add the sliced celery, celery leaves, orange slices, and pecans to the bowl and toss lightly to coat. Add the quinoa, Gorgonzola, and parsley to the salad; fold to incorporate. To serve, season with flaky sea salt and drizzle with olive oil.
