Description

Green Goddess Quinoa Summer Salad – simple, healthy, and extremely adaptable to whatever veggies you have on hand! my family LOVES this recipe. vegetarian and can be made vegan.


Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked quinoa (I cook mine in the rice cooker with broth)
  • 2 cups halved cherry tomatoes
  • 2 cups spinach leaves
  • 1/2 cup (or more, to taste) Magic Green Sauce or Avocado Cilantro Dressing (the Magic Green Sauce is vegan, the Avocado dressing is not)

Add-ins

  • fresh Mozzarella cheese, cut into bite sized pieces
  • a few handfuls of crushed almonds or other nuts
  • grilled veggies like asparagus or zucchini
  • grilled chicken or other protein

Instructions

  1. Cook the quinoa in advance if you can – it tastes best when it’s had a few hours to cool.
  2. Toss all ingredients together to combine! If the Magic Green Sauce is too thick to toss together with the other ingredients, just add a little water or oil to the bowl and it should toss together smoothly.

Notes

I cook my quinoa in vegetable broth for more flavor, and I also cook twice the amount of quinoa I need for this recipe because I like to keep it in the fridge for the week!
