Here’s a little something different for you… Quinoa Salad! It’s full of protein and flavor. Eat it alone or alongside some soup or a small green salad.


Ingredients:

  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 2/3 cup shelled edamame
  • 1/2 cup peanuts
  • 1/4- 1/2 cup freshly chopped cilantro, depending on taste
  • 1/3 cup chopped green onions (optional)

Dressing:

  • 4 T sweet chili sauce
  • 2 T rice vinegar
  • 2 T canned coconut milk
  • 1 T coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoon creamy peanut butter (it mixes in easier if it’s melted, FYI)
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 lime, juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Directions:

  1. Prepare quinoa according to directions, which will most likely call for 2 cups of water.
  2. While quinoa is cooking, combine all of the dressing ingredients together in a bowl and whisk well to combine.
  3. Once quinoa has absorbed all of the liquid, stir in the sauce and toss well to coat.
  4. Add in chicken, carrots, edamame and green onions, stirring to combine.
  5. Taste and season with a little salt and pepper if needed.
  6. Toss in half of the peanuts and cilantro, then serve in a large bowl, topped with remaining peanuts and cilantro.
  7. Eat warm or cold!
