A nutrient and superfood dense salad – this Grilled Summer Vegetable Quinoa Salad is bursting with flavors and drizzled with a light, Lemon Basil Vinaigrette!
I have a confession.
I am an addict to making hearty salads. One dish meals. Nutrient dense, hearty one dish meals.
You could say I love the nutritional boost from them. But also, I secretly love the idea of less dishes. Makes for one happy cook!
It’s no secret that I have a love with quinoa. Caramelized butternut squash quinoa salad. To walnut and kale quinoa salad to even quinoa encrusted chicken fingers. No dish is safe from my love affair. But I don’t see anyone complaining. And if you are, I am glad we are separated by the internet world. Kidding!
With all the summer produce in abundance, one of my ‘go-t0’ make ahead meals is a quinoa salad bursting with said summer produce. Grilled zucchini, sweet corn, crunch red peppers, and sweet red onion mix with fluffy, whole grain quinoa. Then drizzled with a homemade vinaigrette that ties it all together. The basil freshens the salad and the lemon adds the brightness. Simply drizzle. Let marinate then chow down!
