Quinoa Salad

This Quinoa Salad is great for school lunches if you make it the night before! It’s bright, flavourful,  and bursting with veggies. For protein, you can add in any kind of meat that you want! best of all, it’s super easy. So, before you start drooling all over your screen, let me get into the recipe.;))

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup quinoa
  • 1/2 cup diced cucumber
  • 1/2 cup diced peppers
  • 1 sprig of green onion
  • 1 teaspoon dill
  • 1 teaspoon parsley
  • 1 teaspoon cilantro
  • The juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • Protein of your choice

 

Directions:

Follow the cooking instructions on the package of your quinoa. Once you’re done, it should look something like this:

Looks super appetizing, right? Don’t worry, once you add all of the veggies and herbs, it looks way better. While the quinoa is cooling down, dice your pepper, cucumber and green onion into mid-sized pieces and cut your lemon in half, like this:

Now take your quinoa and add the cilantro, dill, and parsley to it, followed by the veggies. Finally, squeeze the lemon juice into the salad. Store this in a container in the fridge and enjoy it for lunch the next day!

As for protein, you can really add anything you want. I usually put hemp seeds in mine, but chicken would go great as well.
