Quinoa Salad Recipe (Vegan) — The Frugal Chef


This quinoa salad recipe is made with artichoke hearts, tomatoes, cucumbers, scallion greens and walnuts. We will make a balsamic vinaigrette to add to it. You can add feta or goat cheese to this if you would like. Of course if you do your salad will no longer be vegan.

Serves four
FOR THE DRESSING:
1 garlic clove – peeled
1/3rd cup balsamic vinegar
1/3rd cup olive oil
Salt & Pepper

Smash and mince the garlic clove. Sprinkle with a little salt and mash it with the back of a spoon until you have a paste.

Place the vinegar in a small bowl and add the garlic paste, salt and pepper. Whisk.
Start adding the olive oil very slowly as you whisk continuously. So not stop whisking until you have added it all to the bowl. Taste for salt and adjust as necessary.

3 cups cooked quinoa
1 cup chopped spinach leaves
2 medium tomatoes – seeded and chopped
1 medium cucumber – peeled, seeded and chopped
½ cup chopped marinated artichoke hearts
½ cup chopped walnuts
2 TBS scallion greens
Feta or goat cheese (optional)

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Add the dressing and toss to coat well.

Serve and enjoy.

  1. Some avocado scattered on top, would also be tasty. I guess that’s the beauty of a salad you add what you like and subtract what you don’t. Will have to try this soon. Thanks, Maryann!
