This quinoa salad makes the perfect lunch or side salad. Definitely some feel good food.
When your husband, who thinks he doesn’t like quinoa and your son, who doesn’t like vegetables can’t get enough of a salad, it’s definitely worth sharing. We have been having this on repeat this week and can’t seem to get enough.
This salad is full of so much goodness. The sweet tomatoes, the crunchy cucumbers, the salty feta and the roasted pecans all work together to create a delicious meal or side that you can feel good about. The salad is dressed simply with a honey mustard vinaigrette. Make this vegan by omitting the feta.
