Looking for a simple and refreshing summer picnic dish? Our favorite quinoa salad is just the perfect thing! It’s simple to make, colorful, nutritious and a crowd pleaser! It has been my go-to potluck dish for years and I’m so happy to finally share it with you.
It’s also perfect for an upcoming Fourth of July picnic or as a cool summer salad for dinner. It’s jam-packed with protein, fiber and antioxidants. It’s a surprisingly filling dish and it holds well overnight! So it’s basically the perfect protein and the perfect warm-weather dish. 😉 You can make it the day before serving—which actually allows the flavors to marinate together even more—just hold off on adding the (optional) pine nuts if doing so. And if you have a favorite veggie or want to add more of the veggies listed, it’s pretty versatile so feel free to get as creative as you want with this one. Hope you love it!
