Golden hues of healthy, healing spices make this dish eye appealing and aromatically delicious! This summer-inspired Healthy Golden Quinoa Salad with Curry Turmeric Spice comes together within 30 minutes and only requires a handful of wholesome ingredients! It truly makes the perfect side dish to grilled fish or chicken. Not to mention it is vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free!
My goal this past week was to create two very different salad dishes that could A) come together very quickly with only a few simple ingredients and B) would make the perfect pack-able/prepped lunch or dinner for all of you to enjoy.
Mission… ACCOMPLISHED! :):):)
To be completely honest I wasn’t always a huge fan of quinoa simply because I preferred the texture of a lot of other grains over it. However, just recently I’ve grown to love the light yet filling feeling it gives me especially during these hot and humid summer days.
I decided to toast up some raw organic almond halves for crunch and added healthy fats. Then I added in some organic dried raisins for added sweetness and of course some fresh parsley to give it that pop of green and fresh summer flavour.
You don’t have to worry about leaving the dressing for this quinoa dish aside as it keeps well in the fridge for up to a week no matter what!
PS doesn’t it remind you of the sunshine?!?!
Happy Tuesday Babes!
