Simple quinoa and avocado salad with a delicious lime dressing!
This light and healthy quinoa salad has so many nutrients and pretty colors packed in! It’s definitely an “eat the rainbow” sort of meal, and makes for the perfect simple meal or meal prep! The flavor combinations in this dish are just perfect, and it will leave you so satisfied while still being super light and fresh!
This yummy dish is made with:
Plus some cilantro and the best simple lime dressing for the perfect bright flavor! It is SO good, and couldn’t be easier to throw together! I know you guys are going to love this veggie-forward dish 🙂
It also happens to be:
High in fiber
It’s healthy meal or side dish everyone will love! It’s a simple 4 step recipe (yes that’s it!!!) that you will definitely want to be part of your regular rotation.
Can I make this dairy free?
Sure! If you need this dish to be dairy free, simply use a vegan feta that you love! You can technically skip the feta, but I personally think it adds so much flavor to the dish so I wouldn’t recommend it! Other than that, the rest of the dish is naturally dairy free.
Can I meal prep this recipe?
Yes! I would just recommend leaving the avocado out until you’re ready to serve/enjoy the dish, as avocado browns very quickly. To keep everything super fresh, simply add the avocado cubes right before enjoying the dish! This quinoa salad will stay fresh in the refrigerator for up 3-4 days.
This recipe is so easy, packed with veggies, and full of flavor. It makes the BEST simple lunch, meal prep, or side dish. Feel free to add your protein of choice to make it a meal! I love serving this with salmon, chicken, diced hard boiled eggs for an easy lunch, or shrimp!
I can’t wait to hear what you think of this amazing simple salad! Enjoy! xo
