Buffalo Chicken Quinoa Salad

You really can’t go wrong with buffalo chicken anything in my opinion.  I’m also a big fan of making a big batch of something and having it to eat throughout the week for lunches or dinners.  Combine those two things and you have this buffalo chicken quinoa salad.  It is a healthy meal you can prep ahead of time that doesn’t lack in flavor.

Ingredients:

1.5 cups cooked quinoa

1 cup chicken, cooked and diced

1 small onion, chopped

1/2 cup buffalo sauce

1 large carrot, shredded

1 cup chopped fresh spinach

Cook the quinoa according to the package.  Let it cool.  In a large bowl, combine the quinoa, chicken, onion, carrot, spinach and buffalo sauce.  Mix it all together really well.

Serve as a side dish or as an entrée.  I love having it as the base of a bowl and adding in extra roasted veggies.  Another great option is to serve as an appetizer with crackers.  Most recently, I served with smoked gouda flavored Triscuits — amazing!
