I love salads and this roast vegetable quinoa salad is such a filling but delicious salad, that is perfect as a main meal or as an accompaniment to a larger meal.
I actually love making this salad at Christmas time (living in New Zealand it’s Summer at Christmas) as I can make it the day before, pop it in the fridge to let the flavours really mingle and intensify. Plus I don’t have so much rushing around on Christmas Day and can enjoy watching the kids open presents.
Furthermore, it makes the perfect pairing with our delicious glazed ham (I will post that recipe in the next few months)
This salad is also great when you are having friends over for a BBQ, as it is healthy and delicious, plus it’s pretty quick and easy to whip up ahead of time, leaving you free to enjoy yourself with friends and family.
As with most of my meals that I make, you can customize this salad to include the vegetables you love and leave out the ones you are not so fond of.
I have also made this salad using red peppers (capsicum), courgette, asparagus which is just as delicious.
