Winter Quinoa Salad

winter quinoa salad

I can't get enough of this fresh tasting salad which is packed full of goodness yet provides a light lunch that doesn't leave me feeling bloated or sluggish for the rest of the afternoon. What's more, it's onion free so a socially acceptable choice for lunch "al desko"! Quinoa is one of my favourite foods but anyone who claims not to like it or says that they find it bland should give this salad a try- it's so yummy with crunchy textures to add interest and I promise that it's anything but boring!

Three great health benefits: good source of plant based protein, beneficial for brain health, good source of anti-oxidants

Serves 3

3 cups cooked & cooled quinoa
2 celery stalks, chopped
1 apple, chopped into bitesized pieces
20g parsley, chopped
1/2 cup walnut pieces
1/2 - 3/4 cup pomegranate
Extra virgin olive oil, to drizzle
Sea salt and black pepper, to season

1) Mix the quinoa, celery, apple, parsley, walnut and pomegranate together in a large bowl until well combined. Drizzle with olive oil and season to taste with salt and pepper.
