Yield 8 servings
Time 35 minutes
  • Large saucepan
  • Wooden spoon
  • Strainer
  • Large bowl
  • 1 batch cooked quinoa
  • about 2 c assorted vegetables – I recommend at least four:
    – avocado
    – beans or chickpeas
    – carrot
    – celery
    – cucumber
    – red or green onion
    – tomato
  • several T dressing: mayonnaise or vinaigrette

    Other additions (up to ½ c)

  • cheese, grated, chopped, or crumbled
  • smoked tofu, diced
  • walnuts or pecans, toasted
Directions Chop or slice the vegetables as needed.

Combine everything in a bowl and serve warm or at room temperature.

Notes This salad has less flavor when it’s chilled, so serve it right away or remove from the fridge half an hour before serving.

Everything in quinoa salad is optional – use any combination of veggies, any kind of cheese (or none), different dressings, whatever you like.
