Arugula Quinoa Salad

This is my new favorite salad. So easy! Great for lunch and filling enough for dinner. Enjoy!

Arugula Quinoa Salad

2 cups cooked quinoa
Olive oil
1/4 cup pine nuts
3 cloves minced garlic
1/4 cup goat cheese
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
Pomegranate seeds


Place enough olive oil to coat in a skillet and add garlic.
 Cook on medium heat for a minute or two.
Add pine nuts and cook for another minute or two.
Add cooked quinoa and toss around enough to coat.
Add cheeses and stir a minute or two until they start to melt.
Remove from heat.
Place arugula in bowls and add quinoa mixture and pomegranate seeds to each.
Stir to combine and serve.


  1. I love quinoa paired with arugula. One of my very first blog posts was for a similar salad (http://www.happilyeverparker.com/2013/05/quinoa-arugula-salad.html) It tastes SO good!

  2. I love Arugula and love quinoa so I will be trying them together now. : www.wearflowersinyourhair.com
