Quinoa Salad Recipe

Quinoa is a very healthy whole grain and is packed with nutrients. One cup of cooked quinoa has 8g of protein, which is equivalent to the amount of protein from 1 egg. Quinoa is also high in fibre which makes it healthy for the heart, the gut and helpful for blood pressure. The next time you want to make a tasty and guilt-free meal, consider this quick and easy recipe.

As Part Of A Meal

Quinoa salad can be eaten on its own as a vegetarian option or with a small serving of chicken for the omnivores out there. Chick peas are a good vegetarian source of protein which can be added to the salad in place of chicken. Considering that all of the ingredients in this salad are quite healthy, including the quinoa, vegetables and olive oil, it is good recipe to work into your diet on a regular basis. This is also a gluten-free option for people with problems with gluten.
