Healthy Salmon and Quinoa Salad

30 Jul

woohooo! i finally finally finally used quinoa!

I can’t believe i have lived 16 years without tasting this amazing natural beacon of awesomeness; but i’v finally joined the club and i am 100% obsessed about quinoa, and i will probably be using it in a few of my following “healthy lunch ideas” posts.

It’s just such a better substitute to rice or any form of carbohydrate, and naturally a substitute should be something a little less delicious but still give you the same taste, but quinoa is just so much better than anything ever made.

 

This salmon salad has such simple ingredients, doesn’t need any dressing because it tastes great on its own and just full of vegetables, and omega-3 from the fish.

250g cooked salmon (i used olive oil and also added lots of lemon)

    Well done on your first try of quinoa. I love using it to bulk out salads and it’s quick and easy enough to cook in the morning rush before work.
