Tag Archive: Quinoa Salad

We are all seriously hooked on Quinoa salad.  So healthy and yummy and so many variations.


3 C. cooked quinoa

1 large apple chopped

1 Dole Chopped Salad (Sunflower Crunch)  Extra yummy!


1 C. creamy blue cheese or vidalia onion dressing

2 Tbsp. dijon mustard

2 Tbsp. white wine vinegar

3 Tbsp. oil (I used hazelnut, but anything with good flavor will do)

2 tsp. salt

Gorgonzola crumbles to top salad


Mix quinoa and chopped salad kit ingredients.  Add dressing, vinegar, oil, salt and mustard.  Blend.  Add in chopped apples.

This was our favorite quinoa salad so far!  So many endless varieties.


The chopped salad kits are great because they make a variety of veggies that are already prepared easy to add in to cooked quinoa!  Our local market puts them on BOGO sale regularly, so I always grab a few when they are on sale, and still buy them even when they are not!

Quinoa Salad with Chick Peas and Chopped Veggies

4 C. cooked Quinoa
1 can chick peas, drained
2 C. chopped veggies. (I used Dole Chop Salad Kit, but skipped the tortilla strips and dressing that come with the kit) that had Green Cabbage, Red Cabbage, Romaine, Kale, Carrots, and Green Onions)
1 C. dressing of choice (I used Greek Vinaigrette and creamy blue cheese (bottom of the bottles!) that I mixed with dill mustard, vinegar and sugar)

Toss all together. Refrigerate 30 minutes before serving.
