Red Pepper and Lime Quinoa Salad is an easy and nutritious, nutty salad packed with red pepper and lime. It is perfect to pair with grilled chicken and make ahead!
Monday Tuesday and we are talkin’ salads.
Nevermind the fact that I am joining the National Salad Month a tad bit late, but you shouldn’t hold that against the deliciousness that is going on with this Red Pepper and Lime Quinoa Salad.
Salads that lack any form of lettuce and have a grain as that star, are one of my favorite salads to make as they are easy to prepare, you can add just about anything you desire and the flavor intensifies over time. Read as, a big win!
I realized that when you put a large bowl of just quinoa in front of a male, they resemble a 5 year old pushing around their vegetables, dreading the fact that they actually have to consume them before getting up from the table. After this occurrence happening one too many times, I started to add mix in’s to amp up the flavor. And magically, the salad starting disappearing faster and faster as I added more goodness into the bowl.
This recipe came to me as a healthier side dish for our loved Mexican night. We all know my love of salsa, nachos and margaritas! So with swimsuit season upon us, nutritious meals filled with veggies are a must. Crunchy red pepper plus bright lime and quinoa make for one delish make ahead salad that no one can resist!
