This tasty Cranberry Cilantro Quinoa Salad is super healthy, full of flavor, and ready in just 15 minutes!
I originally thought I was out of carrots (the horror!) so the photo doesn't have any orange beauties peeking out from the quinoa. Luckily I found a bag hiding under the lettuce (huzzah!!!) and was able to add them in. I couldn't imagine the salad without them, the flavor really shines through and pairs so well with the rest of the ingredients! I'm in love!
The salad is on the drier side (ideal for fluffy quinoa-based salads) but feel free to add extra lime juice and olive oil as desired! You can even serve this dish as a base for your favorite baked or grilled protein. Chicken, tofu, or fish are all fantastic with a little quinoa salad action!
Craving a kick? try it with a drizzle or two of Sriracha! It's AMAZING!
