Quinoa Dump Salad

Apr 15, 2020 | Main Meals

As I try to use up every last ingredient before having to make another trip to the grocery store (quarantine life), I found myself tossing together this crunchy and tangy quinoa salad.

I was craving fresh ingredients that fit my health and fitness goals. I know that when I eat well, I feel my best. And when I feel my best, I can care for my family so much more effectively – and that’s a win-win for everyone. This fiber rich salad will keep you satisfied and can support your weight-loss goals! 

It’s super easy to prepare, just prep all your ingredients and then toss together in a bowl. If you need to substitute anytime, by all means go for it!
