Zesty Cilantro-Lemon Quinoa Salad

Hi friends!

Quinoa salads are a meal prep staple in my house! So many of you seemed interested when I posted a quinoa salad on my Instagram that I wanted to roll out this recipe faster for you.  I find quinoa is the perfect grain for summer because it’s light and airy and can be easily made warm or cold to take on your spring and summer events or become a more savoury, heavy meal in the winter with the addition of meats and different flavours.

I love salads like these because they are fun to whip up using whatever ingredients you have on hand. I wanted to use Mexican type ingredients so I threw in corn, cilantro, tomatoes and black beans but feel free to add some feta, olives or whatever else you’d like!  For this quinoa salad recipe, I wanted to keep it vegan and gluten-free for this recipe.

I really hope you try out this delicious recipe! Please tag me on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook @balancingandie so I can see your lovely creation friends!  To never miss a post again, you can subscribe to my blog on your right hand panel and receive a freebie too!
