January 04, 2015 | Serves 2 as Main, 4-6 as side
- 2 Cups of Cooled Quinoa, Cooked in (Veg/Chicken Stock)

This salad is so gorgeous and is quickly becoming a household favourite at home. We have it with everything! It’s great for using up left over quinoa and is ready in a matter of minutes. It’s the perfect lunch or light dinner and makes a delicious lunchbox filler on the go. You can serve it as a side or it makes a great main as it is, with some chicken or my favourite way to have it- topped with a poached egg.
Add the spinach and lettuce to a large bowl. Add your seeds to a pan on medium heat and toast for a few minutes.
Add the quinoa, toasted seeds and spring onions to your bowl.
Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar to your liking. You can serve tossed or with a nice mountain of quinoa in the middle!
