I’m usually too busy through-out the day to make a healthy lunch for myself. I’m more of a grab-n-go type of gal when it comes to lunches. Unfortunately, most lunches that I go to grab aren’t as healthy as I’d like them to be, and does “coffee” count as lunch? That’s why I absolutely love this salad: This spinach quinoa salad with lemon vinaigrette is both filling and healthy. I’m able to prepare it, pop it in the fridge, and know it will provide me with delicious meals for the next couple of days.
This salad also makes for a great size dish. To make the salad even heartier you can add extra sweet potato or even substitute the sweet potato for butternut squash. The butternut squash version of this salad makes for a great side dish for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.
The lemon vinaigrette is easy and delicious as well. It gives the spinach quinoa salad that extra zing and tang that I love. It also goes great on additional green salads, so I like to make extra to keep in the fridge. Enjoy my recipe for this hearty and delicious spinach quinoa salad. I hope it will fill some of your lunch-time voids too. If you like this healthy recipes be sure to also check out my recipe for Chunky Gazpacho.
