Weekend Cooking – Quinoa Salad

Weekend Cooking is a weekend blog meme hosted by The Intrepid Reader.

After getting into the swing of living with my parents and siblings again, my partner and I decided to start making one meal a week for the family. So far we’ve been doing dinners, and this week we made a particularly good salad.

This salad had a base of spinach, ground beef and quinoa. We also made a creamy balsamic dressing to go with it.

Once all the veggies were cut it was a really simple salad to prepare! We added so many veggies. Onions, green onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, some olives and pepperoncini peppers. And we topped it all with feta cheese.

This bowl is huge! I added two pictures so that everyone can see just how much salad a family of 10 will eat. There was exactly one spoonful of salad left after we finished eating. 😀 The salad was super fresh and tasty and I will definitly be making it again.


    • I might do a different meat, or garbanzo beans next time I make it. Ground beef was just what I had on hand.
      But I do like Larb and the salad I made turned out okay as well, so who knows! Thanks for stopping by!
