Chicken & Quinoa Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Chandra M

This salad is high in protein and simple to make. I use chicken that has been grilled, but any leftover chicken would work. I might also try it with some baked tofu in place of the chicken.

This is great. I added a bunch of fresh spinach.
