Moroccan Quinoa Power Salad

Moroccan quinoa power salad — this hearty grain salad is loaded with vegetables, protein and sweet dried fruit. It’s a great side or light lunch any day of the week!

I love coming up with variations of quinoa salad for lunch, and this Moroccan Quinoa Power Salad is hands-down my new favorite! It’s loaded with so many nutritious things, and is the perfect combination of savory and sweet.

It keeps for several days in the refrigerator too, so I love making a big batch and eating it throughout the week.

Whether you’re having lunch at home, or looking for something healthy to take into the office, this salad has everything you need.

This salad is also a wonderful side dish for things like grilled chicken or seafood. And it’s easily adaptable to use whatever veggies, nuts, and beans you have handy.

You could even add chicken or shrimp for a complete, hearty dinner. It would be a perfect summer meal on those warm days where you don’t want to turn on the oven.
