Quinoa, Pomegranate & Pistachios with Ricotta Salata

This colorful side dish takes only minutes to prepare and makes a lovely, festive addition to any holiday table. You can make the salad the day before; just wait to add the pistachios until the last minute, so they retain their crunch. Ricotta salata is a dry, salty cheese; feta is a fine substitute.
