go-to quinoa salad

go-to quinoa salad

I call this my go-to because it's easy to make, packed with nutrients and yummy for lunch. I typically like to have black beans or chickpeas in my quinoa salads but you can put whatever veggies and protein you like! This recipe makes about 5 servings. 

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of quinoa
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 cucumber, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon of yellow onion diced
  • 1 carrot, cut into half coins
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh rosemary chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh basil chopped
  • 1 can of black beans (1 and 1/2 cups)

Dressing Ingredients:

  • 1 lemon, squeezed (about 2 tablespoons of juice)
  • 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar 
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil

Directions:

Combine the two cups of quinoa with 4 cups of water in a pot.

Bring water to a boil.

Cover and reduce heat to low until quinoa is tender which takes about 10 minutes.

Strain the quinoa and toss with veggies and the dressing.

Pack for lunch!
