Easy Quinoa Salad Recipes to Make for Lunch

Delicious, easy quinoa salad recipes that are perfect for weekday lunches! These flavorful, protein-packed salads will be your new go-to quinoa recipes. Double a batch to feed your family or bring to your next party. 

If you know me you know I always manage to sneak quinoa into some of my favorite recipes. Whether it’s a new one pan dinner or a yummy on-the-go bar, there’s something about quinoa that just gives it that extra goodness. Plus one cup of quinoa packs 8g of protein and 5g of fiber – aka the perfect base for some delicious recipes.

I rounded up 11 of my go-to quinoa salad recipes because there’s truly nothing better than super flavorful, easy, add-everything-to-a-bowl recipes. If you need to start with the basics, here’s how to make the best fluffy quinoa!

Not only do these salads make the best, satisfying lunches (Abra and I make them almost every week) but they’re also great for feeding a crowd. Bring one to your next party or make a double batch for the whole family. They’re guaranteed to impress – even on football Sunday. Take a scroll, pick a few favorites to make for lunch, and be sure to leave a comment with your favs.
