This is something I threw together last minute to take to a family brunch when I was notified that the only vegetarian dish on the menu was Mimosas. It ended up being a huge hit. At a former job, I made it once for a potluck and my coworkers ended up requesting "that weirdo vegetarian salad" for every subsequent potluck. You could easily adapt this to include whatever veggies you have on hand. Sometimes I add cauliflower if I've got some hanging around in the fridge. Preparation time includes the time to cook the quinoa, but not the time to cook dried beans as I almost always use canned.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the quinoa, veggies, and beans together.
  2. Add as much Italian dressing as you want.
  3. Top with chiffonade of fresh basil.
  4. Chill before serving.
