2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the quinoa; toast the almonds

  • Keep the prosciutto refrigerated until ready to use. 
  • Rinse the quinoa.

In a small sauce pot, combine the quinoa and ½ cup [1 cup] lightly salted water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the quinoa is tender and the water is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork, cover, and keep warm.

Meanwhile, in a dry large frying pan over medium heat, toast the almonds, stirring often, until lightly browned and fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl. Wipe out the pan. While the quinoa is cooking, prepare the skewers.


Prep the skewer ingredients

  • Peel and cut the onion into enough 1-inch pieces to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
  • Remove any stems from the grapes.
  • Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ½-inch-thick half-moons.
  • Cut the prosciutto slices in half lengthwise, then separate the pieces. 

In a medium bowl, combine the onion, grapes, zucchini, and 1 to 2 tablespoons oil. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Working with 1 zucchini slice at a time, wrap it with a piece of prosciutto until you’ve used all the prosciutto. 


Assemble and cook the skewers

Thread the onion, grapes, prosciutto-wrapped zucchini, and any unwrapped zucchini slices onto the skewers, alternating the ingredients. Set aside any remaining ingredients that don’t fit on the skewers for the salad. 

In the same dry pan used for the almonds, add the skewers and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until the vegetables and prosciutto are golden brown on the edges and the onion has softened, 8 to 10 minutes. While the skewers are cooking, prepare the salad. 


Make the dressing; assemble the salad

  • Zest and juice the lime. [Zest 1 lime; juice both limes.]

In a small bowl, stir together the miso-maple glaze, lime zest, and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] lime juice. 

To the bowl with the toasted almonds, stir in the quinoa, half the dressing, and any remaining skewer ingredients (set aside the remaining dressing for serving). Gently stir in the arugula and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the quinoa-arugula salad to individual plates and top with the skewers. Serve the remaining dressing on the side.
