seedy quinoa power salad

The perfect use for left over quinoa! A super seedy omega protein salad. As with rice and beans and lentils, when ever I cook quinoa I always cook enough to make a salad with the next day, even if you just add a scoop to the top of a green salad, it’s a nice addition. Anyway this was just a big fridge clean salad, complete with dressing made while standing in the fridge door.

 

2 cups of cooked quinoa

finely diced veggies:

2 small tomatoes

3 bunches of red kale

1/2 cucumber

2 green onions

1 cup of a small red cabbage shredded

 

Toss veggies with quinoa and add the following seeds:

1/2 cup hemp seeds

1/4 cup flax seeds

1/2 cup sunflower seeds

 

drizzle with equal parts:

hemp or flax oil (walnut oil would be really yummy too)

apple cider vinegar

 

season with:

S+P

lemon zest

 

toss and enjoy, or put it in a mason jar and take it for a hike in the woods to keep you going!
