Vegetarian Quinoa Salad Recipe: Eating Healthy Doesn't Mean Bland


Happy almost three day weekend! I can't wait to get some sleep, get a bit organized, cook, photograph, blog and just chill {and I just found out a friend will be in town!!!}. What are your plans?

Before I wish you a happy weekend, I thought I'd share a quick dish with you: Vegetarian Quinoa Salad Recipe. I suppose this could also be considered a side.

This is a no-recipe recipe.

Take cooked quinoa, add spinach, chopped tomatoes, chickpeas, black cured olives, red onions, drizzle of olive oil and salt and pepper. Mix. Serve.



Do you like quinoa? How do you use it in your cooking?

Fantastic coincidence--I just finished making a quinoa salad with vegetables! I love having a big bowl of a salad like this in the refrigerator for lunches for several days. Yours sounds great with the olives, tomatoes, and chickpeas!
