I discovered quinoa a couple years ago and was obsessed for quite awhile! It was during the beginning of my journey to cut back on wheat, so it was a great alternative to pasta. After making the same recipes over and over again, we got a little tired of it.
Then, a few months ago a friend made a quinoa salad for dinner. It was amazing! I loved the idea of being able to add some texture and protein to a salad.
Sweet potatoes were a must for my first quinoa salad creation. They add a lot of flavor and are good for you, too. I added chicken to make this salad an all-in-one meal. Spinach, onions and feta finish it off perfectly.
One of the best things about this quinoa salad is that it tastes great served hot or cold. You can cook it up for dinner and save the leftovers to eat for lunch the next day. You don’t even have to worry about heating them up!
Have you tried a quinoa salad yet? What did you put in yours?
