Quinoa Arugula Salad with Pineapple

Quinoa Arugula Salad with Pineapple

Quinoa Arugula Salad with Pineapple is a quick and delicious side dish that’s bursting with flavor from fresh, simple ingredients. This vegetarian and gluten-free quinoa salad is perfect for your next potluck!

This recipe started out as a total fail. I set out to make a pineapple arugula smoothie in honor of Cinco de Mayo. But as soon as I tried my super green concoction, I knew I couldn’t salvage it.

I think arugula has just too strong of a taste to be the sole leafy green in a smoothie. But I still plan to master an arugula smoothie at some point, just with a better combo of ingredients, so be on the lookout!

Anyway, this amazing Quinoa Arugula Salad with Pineapple was the happy result of my kitchen fail. And boy am I glad that’s where I landed.


  • 2/3 cup dry quinoa - to yield ~2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1.5 cups water
  • 2 cups pineapple - chopped
  • 1 bell pepper - deseeded and chopped
  • 2 cups baby arugula - loosely packed, more to taste

For the dressing:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint - chopped
  • 2 limes - juiced
  • 1 tbsp honey
