Healthy and Wholesome Quinoa Salad Recipe

Healthy and Wholesome Quinoa Salad[yields]

This quick and portable quinoa salad has it all: complete protein, whole-grain goodness, orange and green vegetables, fruit, and a small amount of healthy oil. This mix means it’s full of vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, phytonutrients, and fiber plus whatever extra goodness came with your broth.

Cook quinoa the night before and chill, then toss with fresh seasonal vegetables. Use the carrots and bok choy suggested here or whatever is freshest at your market: sugar-snap peas, spring onions, bell pepper, tomatoes, or grated summer squash.
