Apples, celery and walnuts can only mean Waldorf salad. The creaminess in the salad usually comes from mayonnaise, but here we used an oil-and lemon dressing, and blue cheese provides the creaminess.

Combine shallots and lemon juice in small bowl. Set aside.
Bring 2 cups (500 mL) water to a boil in small saucepan. Stir in quinoa. Reduce heat to low, and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand for 5 minutes. Transfer to large bowl and fluff with a fork. Cool to room temperature, about 15 minutes.
Chop arugula roughly. Add arugula, shallot mixture, apples, celery, half of the walnuts, half of the cheese, the oil, salt and pepper to quinoa; toss together until well mixed. Garnish with remaining walnuts and cheese.
