Quinoa and Cabbage Salad

Serves 4



  • 2 1/2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1 cup yellow pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup cannellini beans
  • 3/4 cup red cabbage, chopped
  • 1/4 cup sugar snap peas, diced
  • 1/2 cup kale, chopped
  • 1/2 cup parsley


  • 3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  • 1 Tbsp. cayenne-infused oil (1 part vinegar + 3 parts EVOO + dash of cayenne)
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. fresh cracked pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. dried oregano


Combine ingredients for dressing in a small jar and shake well then set aside.

Prepare, wash and dry your vegetables and begin to chop them all up.

Once prepared, add them to a bowl with cooked quinoa and stir. Add dressing and enjoy with your family. This salad will last in the fridge for five days.

Tip: If you’re eating it from a jar, first add a bit of the dressing to the bottom and then layer bits of each vegetable and quinoa. Finish off with a tiny bit more dressing before sealing to take on yourbusy day!
