I call this Everyday Chickpea-Quinoa Salad for a very simple reason: I eat it almost every day! Not only is it a complete meal, it?s everything I want in a salad?texture, nutrients, and ease, all smothered in an irresistible balsamic vinaigrette. It?s also foreverly customizable: switch up your salad greens, your beans, and even the grain. Try it my way once, then use this as your complete meal salad template. This salad makes use of cooked and cooled quinoa, so make your quinoa the day before and you?re good to go. Otherwise, use the grain cooking and cooling tips on pages 13 and 76.
