Gluten-free quinoa salad gets a huge flavor boost from plenty of tasty add-ins
Quinoa has become such a popular staple over the past couple years since being classified as a superfood. Loaded with protein and nutrients and ideal for vegans and vegetarians, this ingredient easily made its way into my kitchen.
I wanted to make a salad using quinoa, but I wasn't looking for one that would be served cold. So I cooked the quinoa and tossed it while still warm with diced artichoke hearts, fresh vegetables and salty feta cheese. Drizzled with a light, lemony dressing, it's exactly what I was looking for.
This salad is so flavorful, plus it's gluten-free and healthy, to boot. You can even make this dish ahead of time, and the chilled leftovers are fantastic for lunch the following day, if desired.
