Crunchy radishes, sweet and citrusy dressing, and protein-packed quinoa, this salad is not your average, boring salad 😉 It’s best cold or room temperature, so it makes the perfect meal prep lunch item, too! 


What (your ingredients):

1 cup quinoa

2 cups water

Dash of salt

6-8 Easter radishes

1 orange

½ lemon


1 tablespoon honey


How (your directions):

In a medium sauté pan, combine quinoa, water, and a dash of salt.  Bring to a boil, then cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, finely dice radishes and set aside.

To make the oil-free dressing, juice and strain 1 orange and ½ lemon into a jar.  Add honey and a dash of salt, then whisk or shake vigorously until well combined.

When the quinoa has finished cooking, pour into a large bowl.  Add radishes and honey citrus dressing, stirring to combine evenly.

Cover bowl and refrigerate at least 2 hours to allow quinoa to absorb dressing and cool.

Serve with slices of avocado or slivered almonds (or both!) over a bed of leafy greens.



Why (the science):  You may think that this meal is rich in vitamin C from the citrus, but radishes are also a rich source of vitamin C.  Vitamin C helps your body produce collagen and is essential for fat metabolism!
