A hearty, delicious, and satisfying Quinoa Superfood Salad



1 cup cooked quinoa

1 small bunch of broccoli, or broccoli rabe, steamed to just tender

1 1/2 cups assorted leafy greens, such as watercress, arugula, lettuce, chopped if large

3/4 cup fresh herbs, an assortment is lovely, mint, basil, parsley, cilantro, chives, etc

1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

1/2 avocado, peeled and sliced

1/3 cup olives, pitted

1/2 English cucumber, deseeded and diced

1/4 cup toasted nuts and seeds, such as pumpkin, sunflower, cashew, walnuts, almonds

  1. Steam the broccoli or broccolini until just tender. Drain and put aside to cool while you’re preparing the rest of the salad.
  2. Place the cooked quinoa in a large bowl
  3. Cut the steamed broccoli or broccoli rabe into bite-size pieces and add to the bowl
  4. Add all the other ingredients, and toss to combine.
  5. Drizzle over the dressing of your choice, I love this Bragg’s Oil-Free Vinaigrette
  6. Top with fresh herbs, and a further sprinkling of nuts and seeds
