High Protein Quinoa Salad is exactly how it sounds – high in protein! The quinoa, kidney beans, edamame, and pine nuts are all ingredients that are packed with protein that will leave you feeling full and satisfied.
I love this salad because it is so quick and easy to make, and is an awesome dish to bring to a family or friend gathering! The crunchy vegetables add bright colour and great flavour to the salad, and also contains awesome nutrients that our body loves. It also keeps great in the fridge for up to a week so you can enjoy the leftovers!
