Plated + Served: Picnic Quinoa Salad


Here’s a protein-packed salad for your next picnic… especially if you have vegetarians in tow.

This salad not only travels well, it stays fresh in the fridge for a couple of days so you can make it ahead of time. You can also add more veggies to the salad (diced carrots, jalapeños, radishes), depending on what’s in season.

Drew, my little vegetarian, loves this salad… and she always ends up fighting off the carnivores in the family to keep them from devouring it before she gets a chance to dig in!
