February 7, 2019

A delicious spin on a classic green salad - quinoa salad! Filling, nutritious & delicious. Whether you make a big bowl to go with dinner or divide it into portions for meal prep, you can't go wrong!

 

 

Ingredients

Salad

2 cups cooked quinoa (1 cup dry)

1 cucumber – chopped into bite size pieces

1 pint cherry tomatoes – chopped in half

1 cup spinach – chopped

½ red onion – chopped

1 avocado

Optional – nuts or seeds of your choosing

 

Dressing

¼ cup olive or avocado oil

2 tbsp. lemon juice

1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar

1 tsp. honey

1 garlic clove - minced or finely chopped

2-3 shakes (approx 1 tsp.) oregano

 

 

Directions

To prepare quinoa – Add one cup of dry quinoa to pot. Add two cups of water. Bring pot to a boil. Once boiling reduce heat to simmer & cover. Simmer for 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.

 

 

To prepare salad – Combine quinoa, cucumber, tomatoes, spinach & onion in a large bowl, mix well. If serving immediately, chop avocado into bite sized pieces & mix in. If meal prepping, wait to add chopped avocado until day of consumption. In a separate bowl combine all dressing ingredients, whisk until oil is thoroughly mixed with other liquids. Pour dressing into the large bowl & stir. Optional to top with nuts or seeds of your choosing (I like pumpkin seeds). Eat up!
