Asian Quinoa Salad

A quick and easy healthy quinoa salad dressed in sweet and tangy Asian flavors, loaded with tons of veggies!

Since it’s the eve of Halloween, I am attempting to eat healthy in preparation of devouring all the Halloween candy tomorrow. See, I’m being smart and planning ahead. That way, I don’t have to kill myself with a 10-mile run to work off all those Kit Kat bars, which is my ultimate candy weakness.

So here’s my go-to clean eating meal before the big day: a bowl of Asian-style quinoa dressed in a sweet and tangy sesame vinaigrette loaded with all sorts of veggie goodness – shredded cabbage, avocado, bell pepper, carrots, corn and green onion – but feel free to add in your favorite kinds of veggies. If you need more protein, you can also add in tofu or shredded chicken breast. And you can’t forget about those crispy noodles for that added crunch. I cheat a little bit and always add a little extra in my bowl!
