Summer Recipe // Simple Quinoa Salad


* Recipe by guest contributor Laney Schwartz, creator of Life is But a Dish

I’m all about fresh, simple food.

Don’t we all want a dish that’s easy to make, packed with flavor, and makes enough to last a couple of days? Yes please!


Lots of colorful veggies tossed together with the fluffy quinoa make for the perfect side dish. Throw in some diced chicken, or top with grilled salmon for a picture perfect meal!


I love how versatile quinoa can be. It’s great in soups and stews, burgers, and more. But my favorite way to eat it is simply dressed and tossed with seasonal ingredients.


Feel free to jazz this up however you like. Add cheese, nuts, or even a little avocado. Then don’t forget to pack it up for lunch tomorrow!

And add it to your weeknight menu.


Then invite me over to eat.
