This recipe rocks my world.

I have literally made this quinoa salad five times a week for linner ( linner= lunch + dinner combined ) for the past month.

Back story: one random Monday I had no greens in the fridge…but was desperately craving a salad.

I decided to make my usual daily snack: I threw avocado into a bowl & added Himalayan pink crystal salt + Meyer lemon juice.

Suddenly I had the bright idea to add vegan quinoa, some leftover pomegranate seeds, & a spoonful of hummus.

All was amaze…but it needed spice.

Cue the chili flakes.

It was so yummmm, guys. Like, so, so party-in-my-mouth-yum. I’ve been OMG-ing ever since the first bite.

And honestly, this salad is super F-ing ugly to look at, but I don’t care- it’s addictive.

Warning: once you try this, prepare to fall in love…it’s that good.

    Looks delicious!! I just bought a pomegranate this week; planning to throw it on some mixed baby greens and quinoa (inspired by one of your previous posts!) Love such a simple dressing idea like lemon, pink salt, and chili flakes.

    Definitely going to try this – thanks!!

    Genius.

    This is so right on for my broke-and-busy-twenty-something-pescatarian attempting to eat healthy current state of life. Love love love, as usual.

    LOVE this! I love quinoa but is there really a “vegan” quinoa?? Or is regular quinoa always considered vegan?
    Is this a stupid question? lol

    Good stuff, and looks so easy! I have that pink Himalayan salt, too, it’s good! You are lucky to be in California where I’m sure the avocados you get on a daily basis are much better than what I get here in Seattle….. I’ve tried them from all the stores around here, and I buy them regularly, but they’re just not as high-quality as what you can get in SoCal.

    Love love loved this. I steamed some tilapia and put it on top and it was perfect. You’re right, the pomegranate makes all the difference. Thanks for the suggestion for a delicious supper!

    I made this recipe, but added a layer of fresh baby spinach on the bottom. It was so f-ing good. Thanks!
