I’m always on the look out for healthy recipes. I stumbled upon this delicious quinoa salad and it is the perfect make-ahead recipe for easy snackage or a quick lunch!
1 Cup Cooked Quinoa*
1 Diced Bell Pepper (I like to use red to add some vibrant color!)
1/2 Cup Frozen Corn
1/2 Cup Frozen Edamame
1/2 Can Chick Peas (save the other half for salads)
1/2 Cup Sliced Almonds
1/2 Cup Dried Cranberries
1 TBS Olive Oil
1/2 Cup Chopped Cilantro

Just mix everything together in a big bowl and refrigerate. This salad is packed with protein from the chick peas and quinoa and edamame it will leave you feeling full and satisfied!
