I am so excited to share this recipe with you guys! This quinoa vegetable salad is super easy, fast, and healthy! It's totally vegan, gluten-free, clean-eating approved... like anything healthy you can think of, this probably qualifies. I originally wasn't gonna blog it because I was like, "This is just vegetables and quinoa, like whatever. Anyone can do it." Buuut, I tasted it and it was AMAZING! I am always so blown away when simple ingredients, simply prepared, yield something completely yummy and satisfying.
This salad is great, not only because it has a ton of raw veggies, but because it's a great make-ahead meal! I chopped and mixed everything after lunch, dressed it with some lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and vinegar, and just let it sit in the fridge until it was time to eat. This gave the flavors a chance to meld and intensify, and I thought it was so good! Not to mention, it was super super filling. I really wasn't expecting that! I served this chilled and topped with some simple grilled chicken, and I was honestly stuffed. I love when healthy food is delicious and doesn't leave you hungry for more!
