Some may consider quinoa the sad, overused alternative to rice, but we beg to differ. For starters, it cooks in a flash (about 15 minutes). It also lasts for days in the fridge, it’s gluten free and it’s one of the only plant-based sources of complete protein out there. And perhaps most importantly, it tastes good with just about everything, from curried cauliflower to barbecue chicken. Not yet convinced? These 15 quinoa salad recipes—like citrus, shrimp and quinoa salad with feta and even quinoa Caesar salad—will change your mind. Ready thy bowls.
