Quinoa & Bean Protein Salad

Updated: Feb 16

I love a good grain salad. So much so that I have them for lunch most days. They fill me up, are easy to make ahead of time, are delicious and keep me full until dinner. They're also great as a side or even a main for dinner. This would be great topped with fish or chicken strips! I eyeballed the amount of each ingredient in this recipe, so feel free to adjust to your liking!

Quinoa & Bean Protein Salad


  • 1 1/2 cups quinoa, cooked to package directions

  • 1 handful of green beans, boiled & cut into bite size pieces

  • 1 15.5oz can of any white beans, drained and rinsed

  • 1 handful of parsley, roughly chopped

  • 1 handful of almonds, chopped

  • 2 Tbsp sun dried tomatoes

  • 2 Tbsp Greek olives

  • EVOO (drizzle as much as you like)

  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

  • 1 Tsp dijon or spicy mustard


  1. Bring a small pot of water to a boil and prepare the quinoa. Bring a second pot of water to a boil and add the green beans for 3 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water.

  2. While the quinoa is cooking, grab a large bowl and add the green beans, white beans, parsley, almonds, sun dried tomatoes and olives. Mix together.

  3. Once the quinoa is done, strain it and rinse with warm water. Add it to the large bowl and mix with the other ingredients.

  4. Top with EVOO, balsamic vinegar and mustard and mix again.

This is perfect as a lunch, a side dish or a main dish. Feel free to add fish or meat to it as well. If you're a cheese lover I recommend adding Feta! YUM!
