  1. Put your Quinoa Flour in a small bowl and add all the seasoning ingredients. Mix well.
  2. Spread the seasoned flour on a large plate.
  3. In a small bowl, beat the egg. Dip each Veal Cutlet in the egg and then dredge in the flour. Set on a plate.
  4. Now, heat your Sauté Pan to Medium. Then add 1 teaspoon butter and 1 teaspoon oil.
  5. When the butter is melted, add 2 cutlets. (You’ll be doing 2 batches.)
  6. Sauté for 2 minutes on one side, then flip and sauté for 1 more minute. Remove and set aside.
  7. Turn off heat so the pan can cool a bit. Reheat the pan to medium and add the reserved 1 teaspoon butter and 1 teaspoon oil. Cook the second batch like the first one.
  8. If you have a large sauté pan and the cutlets aren’t crowded you can do one batch of 4.
  9. Remove and set aside to cool slightly.
  10. Chop the cutlets into cubes.
  11. Bowl Ingredient Prep: In a large serving bowl add all the bowl Ingredients. Then add the Chopped Veal Cutlets.
  12. Dressing Prep: In a small bowl, add all the dressing ingredients. Whisk to combine.
  13. Pour the Dressing over the Bowl Ingredients with the Veal Cutlets. Toss, Toss and Toss some more. Enjoy!
