Quinoa Salad

BY : PUBLISHED : September 23rd, 2016 UPDATED: November 17th, 2021

This is one of my go-to choices for weekly recipe planning. I buy quinoa in bulk, and throw whatever veggies I have in the mix. Sometimes I’ll add finely chopped greens, or I’ll switch up the olives using black or kalamata.  It’s always good.

Cost per serving is about $0.75.
