Quinoa Vegetable Salad

Quinoa Vegetable Salad

This is an easy, nutritious and tasty work lunch recipe that can be prepared in less then 10 minutes. Add any seasonal vegetables and whiz up a quick dressing like our famous green dressing or an easy one such as apple cider vinegar, mustard, lemon and olive oil. 

I made a large bowl of this that gave me three servings then added in some extra protein such as chicken, tofu, boiled eggs, lean meat or beans! 

Ingredients (serves 4) 

  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed 
  • 1 capsicum, sliced 
  • 1/2 cucumber, chopped 
  • 1 punnet cherry tomatoes, halved 
  • 1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained 
  • 1 small red onion, sliced finely 
  • 1 spring onion, sliced 
  • small bunch of parsley, chopped 
  • 1/2 block of feta, crumbled 
  • Dressing- 2 tsp apple cider vinegar, 1/4 cup avocado oil, 1 tsp wholegrain mustard, 1/2 lemon juice squeezed OR our green dressing OR pesto 

Method 

  1. Rinse and drain quinoa then place in a small pot and add 2 cups water. Simmer over medium heat for approx 12-15 mins until cooked. 
  2. Place all the remaining ingredients into a large bowl (except the dressing) and add the cooked quinoa. Mix thoroughly then add the dressing and toss to combine. Serve with your extra source of protein or place in 3-4 containers as your lunch for the week.
