This Easy and Quick Quinoa Salad is vegan and gluten free. It is also tossed in a homemade vinaigrette dressing, loaded with beans, red onions, pepper and parsley! This salad will leave you feeling great and satisfied.
Quinoa is so popular right now and I guess we all know the benefits of this pseudo grain, right?? Yes, it is not a grain although everybody thinks it is. In fact, quinoa is a gluten free super-seed that also comes in lots of pretty colors. And talking about quinoa, what about giving this salad a try?!
If you want a salad but you are tired of eating lettuce, you always have the quinoa salad option. So, you can make this on-the-go quinoa salad that can keep in the fridge for 5 days, or you can eat warm, as you prefer. This mix of quinoa and black beans is definitely healthy and is substantial enough to leave you feeling satisfied.
This salad is also perfect to make when you are very busy and don’t have much time to cook. If you want you can even cook quinoa and make your own vinaigrette dressing ahead of time and when it is time for lunch or dinner you just combine everything together and you are done! Is there something easier than that? I believe not 😉
I hope you enjoy this healthy and nutritious easy and quick quinoa salad as much as we do. Thanks a lot for reading.
