The Super Salad
After a long day at the office and a great workou,t I want something that is fast, easy and doesn’t make my waistline expand.
A healthy well-balanced salad is a great option that fills you up and keeps your weight down. I like balancing my salads by adding grains and a little fat to satisfy the craving my body has after a long day.
Try my Super Salad today!
Super Salad Ingredients:
1 cup of Quinoa
2 cups of packed spinach
½ cup cherry tomatoes
¼ cup of sliced Almonds
½ of an avocado
1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons of cider vinegar
3 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste.
How to Make:
Start Quinoa in the rice cooker or follow box directions.
If you are using a rice cooker rinse 1 cup of quinoa, drain, and add to the rice cooker.
Add 2 cups of water, press start.
My rice cooker is a 1:2 ratio (grains to water) for most grains, but follow the instructions on your rice cooker or if using a stove, follow the box directions as mentioned previously.
When done cooking let cool before adding to other salad ingredients.
Measure and cut spinach adding it to a large mixing salad bowl.
Dice and add tomatoes, and sliced almonds to the bowl, lightly incorporate.
In a smaller mixing bowl add in Dijon mustard, cider vinegar, oil, whisk and add salt and pepper to your taste.
Add a cup of cooked and cooled quinoa to the large salad bowl that has the rest of the ingredients, adding the dressing mix well.
Slice the avocado on the top at the end and serve.
