Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

by Natalie

The other day I whipped together this amazing quinoa salad.  I made sure to write the whole recipe down, and I was so excited to share it with you this weekend. The only thing is that I lost the paper!! So, unfortunately I don’t have the exact recipe for you, but I am going to tell you what I put in it so you can re-create it on your own.

This salad is PERFECT for lunch. Make a large batch of it ahead and keep it in the fridge for a few days.

Here is what I used to make it:

  • cooked quinoa
  • cherry tomatoes
  • red onion
  • bell pepper
  • cucumber
  • fresh chopped parsley
  • fresh chopped mint
  • kalamata olives
  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • roasted organic, free range chicken breast, chopped

All I did was combine everything in a large bowl and dress it with fresh lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper.

This salad is so refreshing, especially on a hot summer day.

I am so sorry I don’t have the exact recipe for you. I hope you still try to make it. Play around with the ingredients to suit your own tastes! You may come up with something better than my own!

Wishing you good health,
