I absolutely love this quinoa salad! It is light, fresh and packed full of flavour! It works really well on its own as a light lunch or dinner but would also work well as part of a larger meal or as a side at a barbecue.
This is the perfect meal to make in advance and eat on the go as it keeps well in tupperware containers and does not need to be reheated.
Sometimes quinoa can have a bitter aftertaste but you can overcome this by soaking it for around an hour before rinsing it in cold water before you cook it. Guidance on this can usually be found on the packets so definitely make sure you check this.
The vegetables used in this salad don’t have to be set in stone and you can mix them up depending on whatever you have in that needs eating, making it a great way to fight food waste. You could also add a fresh chopped chilli to this recipe if you prefer food with a little bit of heat!
