Protein-packed Quinoa Salad Mixer (GF) 

I find that salads always turn out the best when they are unplanned. I tossed this mixture together on the weekend…. It was deadly 😍 


1.5 cup quinoa, cooked

1/2 cup chopped spinach 

1/2 cup canned chickpeas, rinsed and drained

1/2 a red onion, chopped

1/3 cup red cabbage, chopped

1/2 yellow pepper, chopped

1/3 cup roasted almonds 

1/2 garlic clove, crushed 

1/3 cup feta cheese, crumbled 

Dressing: I used my homemade balsamic dressing (recipe below). However, I only added about 2 tbsp. Minimal dressing is needed because it already has tonnes of flavour! 


1/3 cup Balsamic vinegar

1/4 cup olive oil

4 tbsp natural honey

1 tsp of lemon juice
