Healthy Food That Tastes Good: Chilli Lime Quinoa Salad

I, like every other woman I know right now, am currently on a diet. Summer’s coming y’all. I think what’s going to save me through all this, the thing that’s going to keep me happy and satiated are quinoa salads. Here’s a recipe that I invented and feel pretty proud about because it’s delicious and only 350 calories a serving.

Ingredients/Directions (serves 6)

1 cup of quinoa (uncooked)
Cook this (bring to a boil with 2 cups of water and then simmer for about 20 minutes)sld

Meanwhile chop these things into small pieces and put them into a bowl:
1 large cucumber
2 medium peppers–I like orange and yellow, but your choice
1 bunch green onions
1 package of smoked tofu
1 can of corn
2 mangos
1 avocado
1 bunch cilantro

Add in the quinoa

Make this sauce (you can play with ratios here if you like, totally allowed)
6 tbsn olive oil
3 tbsn honey
2 tspn chilli powder
1 tspn garlic powder
1 tspn ground ginger

Pour this yummy sauce all over your salad and you’re good to go!
