Quick and easy, vegan and gluten-free, healthy and yummy...all of our favorite things! Take a look at this refreshing Power Salad recipe to help you get filled and energized. 
What you'll need:
  • 1 cup dry quinoa
  • 2 medium avocados
  • 3 oz. baby spinach
  • 8 oz. cherry tomatoes
  • 3 green onions
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
What to do:
1. Cook the quinoa according to package directions.
Meanwhile, make the dressing: in a small bowl whisk together garlic, red wine vinegar, olive oil, and salt. Set aside.

2. Roughly chop the spinach and place in a large bowl.
Slice the green onions, halve the cherry tomatoes, and dice the avocado.

3. When quinoa is done cooking, add it to the large bowl with spinach and toss. The heat from the quinoa will lightly wilt the spinach.

Serve immediately or refrigerate to let flavors blend more.
