So, let’s get to the recipes...
The first of the quinoa salad recipes we’ll talk about is Tabouli. You can see the full recipe at our quinoa tabouli page.
If you’ve never heard of tabouli before, I’ll give you a little info. It’s a popular salad in the middle east.
Tabouli typically contains bulgur, parsley, garlic, cucumbers, tomatoes, mint, and onion. And it’s usually topped with a dressing of lemon, olive oil, and salt. Simple, yet elegant!
To transform it into a quinoa tabouli -- instead of a regular tabouli -- you can just substitute quinoa for bulgur. Gluten-free and nutritious! Your family and dinner guests will be so impressed.
Now, here are a few other quinoa salad recipes you’re sure to want to try…
As the name of this salad suggests, its claim to fame is that it’s easy. What makes it so easy? Just get all the ingredients together and toss it on a plate. Voila! You’ve got a healthy and filling salad.
The ingredients make it very similar to the tabouli above, except it doesn’t have mint leaves or lemon juice.
All amounts are to taste.
Toss all ingredients on plate and mix a little.
That’s all. Easy, isn’t it?
We like to eat this with avocado on the side.
You could also try black beans to make it even heartier. Adding cucumber or chopped celery would add more nutrition. So give any of these a try.
Alright, on to another recipe!
This will remind you of an asian-style dish.
Use quinoa right off the stove for the best results. We’ve also tried it with baked wild caught salmon and green beans. Yum!
We’ll cover the dressing first and then get to the salad...
In a small pot, saute garlic and onion in oil over low heat. Add remaining ingredients and stir until mixed. Remove from heat.
Here’s a helpful tip. Try making this dressing the day before you put it together with the salad.
Use any amount and proportion for the following ingredients.
In a salad bowl, mix cabbage, spinach, carrots, and sprouts. On the plate, put the salad mix, hot quinoa, and almonds on the very top. Pour dressing over all.
Alright. On to the next of our quinoa salad recipes!
This tangy salad is great in the summer.
We’ll talk about the dressing and then the salad itself...
Mix all together with measurements according to taste. Add the dressing.
