With a light, fluffy texture and a savory flavor, this easy quinoa salad recipe is a great summer side dish for a barbecue or a picnic.


  • 2 cups uncooked quinoa
  • 4 cups beef or chicken bone broth
  • 1 5-ounce package spring mix
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Juice of 1 lemon


  1. Rinse quinoa under cold running water.
  2. Transfer cleaned quinoa in a large saucepan, add bone broth and bring to a boil. Switch heat to low and let it simmer for 15-25 minutes until the quinoa is tender and all the liquid has been absorbed.
  3. Once the quinoa is cooked, remove from heat and let cool completely.
  4. In a large bowl or in the same saucepan, add spring mix, cherry tomatoes, olive oil, salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Mix until all ingredients are well combined. Enjoy!
