Simple Summer Quinoa Salad Recipe



We’ve reached the point in the summer when we want super simple dinners every night that involve as little time working in front of a hot oven as possible.

This easy, delicious dinner is perfect. It’s very satisfying and filling, between the quinoa, beans, and veggies. It’s also flavorful with green onion, cilantro, cumin, and lime.

And it’s versatile. Add alkaline salsa or hot sauce, other fresh veggies you’ve got in the fridge, or slices of avocado. You can make a big batch of quinoa in advance and this will come together in minutes to serve hot or cold.

Ingredients [Serves 4]

1 cup quinoa

2 cups vegetable broth (yeast free)

1 tsp. cumin

1 15 oz. can adzuki beans, drained and rinsed (I use Eden’s Organics)

1 1/2 red or yellow bell pepper, diced

1/3 cup cilantro, minced

1 1/2 bunch green onion, chopped

½ cucumber, chopped

4 tbsp. lime juice, freshly squeezed

3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, or avocado oil

Sea salt to taste (Celtic Grey, Himalayan, or Redmond Real Salt)


In a medium sauce pan, combine quinoa, vegetable broth, and 1/2 of the cumin (1/2 tsp.). Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce heat. Simmer for approximately 20 to 30 minutes, or until all liquid is absorbed.

Add all remaining ingredients to the quinoa, mix well, and allow to sit covered for at least 10 minutes before serving to allow the flavors to combine. Serve and enjoy!
