Ingredients

  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1 cup cooked chicken (I used rotisserie)
  • 1/4 small red onion chopped
  • 3/4 cup little tomatoes (cherry, grape, etc.) halved
  • 5 ounces baby spinach
  • 1 mini cucumber (or 1/4 English cucumber) sliced
  • 1 avocado sliced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper chopped
  • Ranch dressing to taste
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped (optional)

Instructions

  1. Cook your quinoa according to package directions. If making the ranch dressing, make it while the quinoa is cooking/cooling. Here's my recipe.

  2. Meanwhile, prep your other ingredients. Feel free to use what you have on-hand and to adjust quantities as needed to suit your personal tastes. 

  3. Once the quinoa has cooled, assemble the salad and toss with the dressing.
