Protein Quinoa Salad

by Gaya Zeharya
This salad is grate for protein push, if you feel like having a healthy meal after workout, as a full meal for one or as a side salad. Tastes best when it's cold!

My Story

I was looking for a fresh healthy full of protein lunch. I always loved salads but never thought of it as an option of a full meal. As I was going vegan and trying to improve my cocking skills I realized what a great meal it can be to combine legumes in a rich vegetable salad to create a filling meal.
