Do you need a lite meal that doesn’t make you feel overheated and sluggish?

Lite & Lemony Quinoa Salad Wraps final 1

This Quinoa Salad is infused with lemon and full of crisp cucumber and bell pepper. The quinoa and chickpeas give this salad plenty of fuel that make it perfect for a side dish, a topping on a leafy green salad, or in a wrap. I add a few more calories by adding hummus to my wrap and giving the quinoa something to stick to.

Lite & Lemony Quinoa Salad {Wrap}

Ingredients

  • 4 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1 to 2 cups cooked chickpeas
  • 1 cup diced cucumber
  • 1/2 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1/2 cup diced red or yellow bell pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • juice and zest from 1 lemon (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1 tbsp. red wine vinegar

Do

  1. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.
  2. Chill before eating to allow flavors time to mingle.

Serve

This versatile dish can be servedĀ on a green salad for protein filled meal, as a side dish at a potluck, or as part of a wrap. I like to spread hummus on a tortilla, fill it with raw spinach, then add the Quinoa Salad.
