A light and healthy quinoa salad with edamame, red peppers, corn, and a light lemon garlic vinaigrette.
Do you ever have moments where you think you might be going crazy? Like really losing your mind. For example, I sat down for dinner tonight, which is typically when I feed Maddie. However I cannot, for the life of me, remember if I actually fed her or not. I feel like I might have but am I thinking of when I fed her this morning? I really have no idea. Like I said, I feel like I’m going crazy. Please tell me I’m not the only one who has these moments…
Anyways…moving onto the food. I made this quinoa salad as a healthy option for lunch this week. I love making grain “salads” then mixing them with some lettuce or shredded chicken for a quick and easy lunch. This salad is filled with good-for-ya things like edamame, corn, bell pepper, green onion, and cilantro. This is a snap to whip up and requires only minimal chopping…a plus in my book. It gets tons of flavor not only from the veggies but the cilantro and light lemon garlic vinaigrette. I recommend making the salad ahead of time to let the flavors of the vinaigrette really soak into the quinoa and veggies. It’s one of those dishes that just gets better with time!
