Best Summer Quinoa Salad Recipes

These are the best summer quinoa salad recipes, including vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options so there's a fresh, healthy salad for everyone!

healthy quinoa salad recipes to try this summer

There's nothing like the official start to summer. I love the long days, all of the sunshine, the heat (in moderation!), and all of the fresh foods that come along with sweet summertime.

That means plenty of seasonal produce. Veggies like zucchini, cucumbers and fresh tomatoes. And fruit like strawberries, peaches and plums. I just can't get enough!

One of my favorite ways to eat more summer produce is to make hearty grain salads with fresh veggies, nuts, beans, greens and of course, quinoa!

I've been making seasonal quinoa salads forever, so I've rounded up my favorite summer quinoa salads to inspire you to eat more beautiful produce this year.

There are gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, nut-free and allergy-friendly recipes for every palate on this list.

  1. Hi Alyssa,
    I just found your sight recently after The Blender Girl posted your quinoa salads on Facebook. They look incredibly amazing; however, I wondered if you’ve tried making any of your salad dressings without the olive oil. I am WFPB and eliminate as much refined salt, sugar, and oil from my diet as possible. Thanks! Jeri
