If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been all about quinoa lately. It’s easy to prepare, incredibly versatile, high in protein and fiber and can be served for just about any meal. What’s not to love?
Naturally, I have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to quinoa recipes, many of which are salads. I don’t know what it is about quinoa salads, but they never get old. While pinning the other night I stumbled upon yet another delicious looking quinoa salad and had the fabulous idea to do a roundup of summery quinoa salads that I want to dive into.
Like most ideas discovered on Pinterest it took a while for it to actually happen, but the roundup is finally coming to fruition today! I hope you’re ready for it because it’s pretty epic.
As you’ll see all of the recipes are absolutely BEAUTIFUL and scream summer. Hopefully you’ll like them as much as I do and decide to make one (or two) this the summer. <— Perhaps this weekend for your 4th of July festivities?!?
