Quinoa Salad

 

Quinoa SaladI love having a salad I can take out of the fridge and eat as a main dish or side throughout the week. Little man has been loving it, big man loves it, and I love it because it’s so easy to make. There are many different ingredients you can add to make a fun variation: artichokes, olives, bell peppers, etc. Serve it with a side of hummus and maybe some turkey meatballs and you have yourself a quick week night meal. I also love that I can grab all of these ingredients in one trip to Trader Joe’s. This recipe usually lasts at least 2-3 days depending on how frequently we are eating it, but it can stay fresh in the fridge for up to 5 days. Our toddler loves this salad, can’t you tell!
