This is a yummy and nourishing quinoa arugula salad for any season. It is full of good protein from the quinoa and the pumpkin seeds. It is a whole meal in one bowl.

Ingredients:

1 cup cooked Quinoa
2 handfuls, Arugula
1 small handful Parsley
1/4 Red Pepper, chopped
1 small Cucumber, sliced in rounds
1/2 Avocado, chopped
5 pitted Olives
1/2 cup Pumpkin Seeds, roasted
1/4 – 1/3 cup Light Olive Oil Salad Dressing

Directions:

  1. Mix greens, avocado, olives and red pepper together in a bowl.
  2. Mix in Salad Dressing
  3. Mix in cucumber and cooked quinoa.
  4. Sprinkle pumpkin seeds on top.
  5. Now sit down and enjoy this delicious salad.

This is one  serving or if you are a big eater you may need to double the ingredients.

Tip: If you want to make extra for the next day, do not mix the salad dressing, cucumber or pumpkin seeds in. A mix of the basic ingredients will last 3 days in the fridge.

Here is my favourite quinoa:  truRoots Organic Quinoa 100% Whole Grain Premium Quality.

Note:  Arugula has many health and detox benefits. Because of this I often use it in my weight loss and detox classes.
