Speedy Salad with Quinoa and Sunflower Seeds

This is my go-to healthy salad and it literally takes me 2 minutes to put together.  First it’s important to note:

  • Prep Ahead!  I always encourage my clients to prep some staples.  For this recipe, it is helpful to make a batch of my Basic Salad Dressing and a pot of quinoa.  For quick quinoa, use a rice cooker.  Here are some more quinoa recipes if you are interested.

Ingredients (1 serving of salad):

  • Large handful of greens (I prefer pre-washed organic mixed greens, arugula or spinach)
  • 1/3 – 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1/4 cup roasted sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 avocado, diced
  • Few Tablespoons of my All Purpose Salad Dressing
  • Optional Ingredients:  To jazz up your salad, add more veggies like diced tomatoes, cucumbers, or red onions.  A sprinkle of feta or goat cheese is always a yummy topping.  And feel free to experiment with different nuts and seeds.
