Lunch Recipes, Salad Recipes, Vegetarian Recipes



This fresh strawberry quinoa salad with goat cheese, sunflower seeds & lemon Vinaigrette is bright, refreshing, and addictive! The goat cheese adds the perfect tang to the sweet strawberries. For a little extra protein, I like adding pulled chicken breast on top! [message_box color="orange"]recipe_button
