Why I love it: This Olive and Quinoa salad integrates a mouthwatering heart-healthy fat + vegan complete protein + crisp veggies. It can be utilized as a side dish or a main feature.

I like to serve it over leafy greens with grilled chicken (not vegan).

It likewise shops well in the refrigerator for leftovers throughout the week!
