Zucchini and Corn Quinoa Salad is a healthy quinoa salad full of vegetables and creamy avocado. Perfect served warm or cold.
Quinoa is one of my favorite grains and a stable in my diet. I love using quinoa as a salad base because it adds protein and fiber. Quinoa also has all of the nine amino acids essential for human nutrition which makes it a great healthy and filling lunch option. Yay for quinoa!
This Zucchini and Corn Quinoa Salad with Avocado is delicious served warm, but it also tastes great served at room temperature or cold. A simple lime juice and olive oil vinaigrette dresses the salad, adding a brightness to the salad. This salad makes a great filling and yummy make ahead lunch option. If making the salad ahead of time, simple wait to add the avocado until ready to serve.
Zucchini and corn add a nice texture contrast to the quinoa. Make this salad when all the fresh local produce starts to fill the farmer’s markets this summer. This Zucchini and Corn Quinoa Salad with Avocado is full of veggie goodness and is a filling and satisfying plant-based grain salad. It makes for a very yummy light main course or lunch. I think it would also make a great addition to picnic!
