      Two Quinoa Salad Recipes with Simply Quinoa! We had the pleasure of filming recipe videos with our friend Alyssa of Simply Quinoa. Alyssa creates deliciously healthy (primarily plant-based) recipes, a lot of which contain the nutritional powerhouse quinoa!

      This two-for one recipe video includes a new recipe from yours truly plus one of Alyssa’s faves! They are both perfect meal-prepped salads that are great to take with you to work, school, or leave in your fridge for when hunger strikes!

      The key tip for these Mason Jar salads is the layering. Alyssa’s recipe had a great guideline for how to prepare these salads without the ingredients getting soggy! Learn more about Alyssa on www.SimplyQuinoa.com

      Here’s how to layer:

      • Layer 1: dressing
      • Layer 2: beans/protein
      • Layer 3: chopped veggies
      • Layer 4: grains/nuts/seeds
      • Layer 5: greens
      Look at those Salad Layers!

      Our salad recipe was inspired by our Aunt Kathy Curry’s citrus ginger dressing. While she was visiting in January, we cooked live on our Instagram and made a delicious Coconut Green Curry with Shrimp and Chicken (recipe coming soon!). For dinner afterwards, we paired it with Coconut Rice and a mixed greens salad with this delicious dressing!

      Using the leftover dressing, Megs put together this delicious roasted veggie salad and loved it so much ~ we had to share it with you!

      We hope you enjoy this two-for-one recipe video with Alyssa!
