Salads (especially Quinoa Salads) are truly the way to my heart, but I know that getting all those finicky ingredients into them can sometimes be times consuming, or costly at the grocery store. So I have come up with a really simple salad that is easy to prepare, and super budget friendly.
You can make this when friends are coming round for a BBQ, pack it up in an air tight container for a road trip or is perfect to have laying around in the refrigerator for when you need a quick lunch – it will last up to a week in the fridge!
I know there are a lot of people out there who refuse to eat their greens, and get their minerals in but although this salad does not pack that much green colour, it certainly does make up for it in rich proteins, and intense amounts of flavours from this amazingly easy dressing! If you want to read more about why I believe it is super important to make your own condiments, then check out this link – Condiments – hopefully it will convince you to rethink your next store bought dressing, or sauce!
And while I do love my bean, and seed salads, you can also try this dressing out with Mediterranean Salad, Pea Shoot Salad, or my Black Kale Salad which incorporate more leafy greens which are rich in chlorophylls which help keep us healthy and strong. For more Salads just go to recipes, and search under Salads for endless ideas- and I promise you there are many more to come!
If you are looking for something simple, delicious and cost effective then this recipe is certainly for you and your little ones!
