For those of us in Australia, this chicken quinoa salad is a fabulous summer dinner option – and if you’re on the flip-side of the planet, it can also be a wonderful way to add color to your winter nutrition. The zest from the orange is refreshing and gives it a lovely flavor. The quinoa makes the salad more filling. And nutrient-wise, this is a perfect meal for after a workout.
I used minimal ingredients, but you really can get creative and add in as many alternative vegetables as you would like and/or even change the fruit to mango and add some pistachios. I used the latter to make a salad for Christmas and it was a hit.
