Quinoa Salad

On-The-Go Quinoa Salad

Sometimes we forget how busy our kids’ lives can be and how hard it is to eat well on the fly. I have to say my kids do try to eat well but often times packing food for the day is the last thing that they think about as they race out the door. Quinoa salads hold up really well and can be transported in mason jars right in a backpack for convenience.This salad has a great blend of protein, good fats and carbohydrates, even if you choose to omit the chicken.

Dressing
o Juice of 1 lime
o 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
o 1 tsp honey
o ½ tsp salt
In a small mason jar mix all ingredients together and give a good shake

Salad
o 2 cups cooked Quinoa
o 1 small red onion finely chopped
o ½ cup cooked chicken
o ¾ cup cooked black beans
o ½ cup raw spinach
o ½ avocado chopped
o 1/3 cup Feta cheese

To assemble mix all salad ingredients together in medium size bowl. Add dressing. Mix well and refrigerate at least an hour before serving. Even better if made the night before.
