Green Goodness Salad Bowl
Inspired by the Vegetarian Macrobiotic Crunch Salad from Whole Foods Market this salad mixture is an incredibly tasty and healthy meal. I wrote this recipe to accommodate 4 meal sized portions; to make four side serving sizes instead, half the recipe. This recipe can be made even more simply if you roast the broccoli and cook your quinoa ahead of time.
From the vibrant and tangy salad dressing to the various textures of the salad base, each bite is a delight. Packed full of delicious flavors and clean ingredients, this salad is sure to fuel you and leave you feeling good for the rest of the day. Perfect during this bright and sunny spring weather, bring this colorful dish for a picnic in the park and enjoy!
