I love creating quinoa salads. They’re filling enough to eat as a meal, but they’re also great as a side dish! They’re filled with plant based protein, healthy and gluten free.

I introduced this Quinoa Caprese Salad on the blog a few years ago to rave reviews. Since then I’ve shared recipes for Mexican Quinoa Salad, Quinoa Corn Salad and now this Greek Quinoa Salad!

I love incorporating the flavors of the Mediterranean into my recipes. Sun dried tomatoes, olive oil, garlic and fresh herbs all add a ton of flavor to this Mediterranean style quinoa salad.

Chickpeas and quinoa are both wonderful sources of plant based protein. This is a great recipe for vegetarians or vegans looking to add more protein to their diet. It’s easy to make this quinoa salad vegan by simply omitting the crumbled feta cheese on top.

I love to meal prep this salad at the beginning of the week, then eat it for lunches throughout the week. A little drizzle of lemon juice and a dash of salt and pepper really brightens up this salad after taking it out of the fridge! Trust me, after trying this salad once, you’ll be hooked!

Thank you to StarKist Selects E.V.O.O. for sponsoring today’s post!

Getting into a routine of healthy eating can be tough, but with simple protein packed recipes with fresh ingredients, it gets a lot easier!

Zucchini Boats are one of my go-to healthy dinner options, made in under 30 minutes! You can fill the zucchini with buffalo chicken, Greek spiced ground turkey or delicious StarKist Selects E.V.O.O.™ Yellowfin Tuna with Sun Dried Tomatoes.

StarKist Selects E.V.O.O. Tuna is packed in extra virgin olive oil giving it a rich flavor and tender texture. It’s perfect for adding to a Mediterranean Tuna Salad because the olive oil works as a binding ingredient without adding any mayo or dairy to the tuna salad.

You might have had tuna salad as a sandwich or lettuce wrap, but did you ever think about stuffing it in roasted zucchini boats? I didn’t think so!

Welcome to a new, fun recipe that I know you’re going to love!

I started off my trip to New York & Washington DC hosting a Satellite Media Tour with PLUS Media all about Friendsgiving. You can check out one of the segments online now!

I’m now on a plane back to home sweet sunny San Diego. As soon as I arrive home I’ll be heading straight into the kitchen! I have so many awesome recipe ideas that I can’t wait to create and share with you all for Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving & Thanksgiving leftovers!
