This easy quinoa salad features crisp green vegetables that say “spring is here!” This delicate salad is a crowd pleaser.
My Spring Green Quinoa Salad is both filling and delicious, with fresh crisp textures and tangy vinaigrette. I like the variety of these three green vegetables, that are delicate and crisp, and add a pop of colour to the neutral quinoa flavour. This is a perfect quinoa salad to take to potluck, family dinner or to have on hand for an easy side.
Make the Salad your own
While I love this combination, this salad is a great base that you can use to make your own:
- Add your favourite delicate herb, like cilantro or parsley.
- Toss it with a couple of handfuls of greens, like baby spinach or arugula.
- Boost the protein by adding a handful of chopped pistachios or a can of chickpeas
The vinaigrette is an easy dressing that you can use on any variety of salads.
