Quinoa Salad

Quinoa Salad

This Quinoa Salad is made with nutritious quinoa and an abundance of fresh ingredients like cucumber, tomatoes and bell pepper. Plus it’s all finished with a delicious, bright lemon herb vinaigrette. Take bland and basic quinoa up at least 10 levels with fresh and vibrant Mediterranean ingredients in this easy quinoa salad!

Healthy recipes don’t need to be boring. In fact healthy recipes like this are actually some of my favorite. You just feel good after you eat them and when there’s this much flavor you’ll start to crave healthy dishes.

This quinoa salad makes the perfect lunch and it’s a great way to eat lots of vegetables at once and you get a fair amount of protein from the quinoa and chick peas.

It’s a cold quinoa salad so it’s deliciously refreshing too. This is one of those file in the recipe book recipes, it’s just so good!
