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.
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
- Mix greens, avocado, olives and red pepper together in a bowl.
- Mix in Salad Dressing
- Mix in cucumber and cooked quinoa.
- Sprinkle pumpkin seeds on top.
- 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.
