Of all the great ways to make quinoa ― the nutritional powerhouse seed that grows plentifully on the other side of the equator ― the quinoa salad is perhaps the most perfect. Yes, we’re saying it’s better than quinoa breakfast hash. And even better than quinoa nachos. Why? Because it’s so easy to make.

Cook up a batch of quinoa ― but make sure you give it a good rinse first ― and mix it with a handful of ingredients. Just like that, you made a delicious, healthy meal you can eat for lunch or serve as a side for dinner. Boom.
