This Quinoa Salad with Roasted Asparagus is quick and easy to make for your busy days! It is made with red onion, pepper, asparagus, quinoa, and vinaigrette!
Last week, I shared with you guys my Easy and Quick Roasted Asparagus. It was actually our dinner with baked salmon. But as I roasted 2 bunches of asparagus I had leftovers. So, the next day I decided to make Quinoa Salad with Roasted Asparagus for lunch and it turned out so delicious and flavorful. I am a quinoa freak and I am pretty sure I could eat quinoa salad for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and be a very happy girl. No kidding … Ask my husband. He will confirm that 😉
Asparagus really makes good leftovers and with quinoa, this salad is a great option for your lunch box because you don’t even need to warm it up if you don’t want to. You can just have it as a cold salad. And why you would like to warm it up with such hot weather, right? Got extra asparagus? Try this Parmesan Lemon Asparagus Skillet and Asparagus Sweet Potato Chicken Skillet.
I really love the simplicity of Quinoa Salad with Roasted Asparagus and I hope you guys too. Let’s go ahead to the recipe because why would I need to write more if we have to make this salad, right? Lunch is ready everyone 😉
If you’ve made too much quinoa then you can meal prep it! A few more recipes I like to make for the week are Carrot Quinoa Salad, Spring Quinoa Salad Recipe, and Sausage Quinoa Pasta. Also try this delicious couscous salad. It’s so good and easy to make!

- In a large bowl, add all the ingredients, except the homemade vinaigrette.
- Mix all the ingredients to combine.
- Then pour vinaigrette over the salad and toss really well.
- Taste and adjust the seasoning if you think it is necessary.
- Rinse the quinoa before cooking so it doesn't taste bitter.
- You can use chilled leftover asparagus for the salad or reheat it before adding to the salad.
- To store: I recommend not adding the vinaigrette to the salad if you plan on storing it in the fridge as it can get soggy. This salad lasts for up to 4 days in the fridge when stored separately.
