Summer Vegetable Quinoa Salad

For a light, fresh take on salad that gives you a change from the usual greens, try our exciting summer vegetable quinoa salad. This wholesome salad features quinoa, which is a seed containing protein, fiber, folate, and other nutrients. It cooks up similarly to rice and can be used as a grain alternative.

We added bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, and red onions to create a bright combination of colors that make this salad enticing for your guests to eat, as well as to offer varied nutrients. For this summer salad, we cook the quinoa in Kettle & Fire Chicken Bone Broth and water, and finish the salad with a refreshing lemon vinaigrette. The finished result is a colorful and light meal or side that’s more filling than a green salad while light enough to keep everyone feeling buoyant for summer activities. Hope you enjoy!
