Quinoa Greek Salad

Quinoa Greek Salad

This Quinoa Greek Salad is the perfect fresh addition to any meal. This dish is one of those easy recipes I find myself always coming back to and constantly craving. There’s just something about a healthy meal prep that actually stays as delicious and fresh as it was on day one, five days later. I used to think such a thing didn’t exist, but this Greek salad is a meal prep miracle!

This salad is perfect as a side dish, wrapped into a tortilla or whole grain wrap, or in a big bowl topped with grilled chicken or avocado for a full meal. This salad is bursting with flavors and a powerhouse of nutrients that will keep you fueled and satisfied throughout the day! Meal prep a big batch to last in the fridge up to 5 days.

You don’t have to stick to the recipe, feel free to mix up the veggies to your liking. Sometimes I even throw in some halved grapes for a sweet touch. If you prefer a lighter dressing, simply add a splash or two more of red wine vinegar and olive oil until it’s to your preferred consistency – it tastes delicious either way but will lighten up that tangy Dijon flavor. If meal prepping, just keep the dressing separate, it will keep better!
