Quinoa salad with avocado is an easy lunch or dinner any day of the week. Tossed with a zesty dressing and stored in the fridge, it’s the perfect meal prep recipe. 


  • 3 cups cooked quinoa, cooled
  • 1 cup roughly chopped fresh spinach
  • 1 cup halved grape tomatoes
  • 1 large avocado, pitted and chopped
  • 12 Tbsp. finely chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh chopped basil
  • 1/2 cup Greek Salad Dressing


  1. In a large bowl, toss all ingredients with the dressing. Taste and add more salt and pepper if needed. 
  2. Cover and chill the salad in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes before serving. If making the salad ahead, leave the avocado out and add it just before serving.



  • Leftovers: Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 5 days.
