Green Goddess Quinoa Summer Salad

Green Goddess Quinoa Summer Salad


  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 2 cups halved cherry tomatoes
  • 2 cups spinach leaves
  • 1/2 cup (or more, to taste) Avocado Cilantro Dressing


  • Fresh Mozzarella cheese, cut into bite sized pieces
  • a few handfuls of crushed almonds or other nuts
  • Grilled veggies like asparagus or zucchini
  • Grilled chicken or other protein


1. Cook the quinoa in advance if you can – it tastes best when it’s had a few hours to cool.

2. Toss all ingredients together to combine! If the Magic Green Sauce is too thick to toss together with the other ingredients, just add a little water or oil to the bowl and it should toss together smoothly.
