This Quinoa Salad is a quick and easy, healthy dinner idea, with a little mojito taste! Great for Summer time grilling!
I had some totally witty opening line about going to Miami tomorrow.
And how I was getting in the mood by eating tropical themed foods.
Then I realized that you guys would totally not buy that, because I already live in Florida.
It’s kind of like being on a tropical vacation every day, so I don’t really need to get in the mood.
And now you hate me for rubbing that in
Remember these banana vanilla orange smoothies though? You’re all invited to my tropical apartment.
We ARE going to Miami tomorrow for “Blog Her Food.” If you’re a food blogger, you know what this is. If you’re not, it’s a big food blogging conference where we all get to go hang out and have fun together.
I’m pretty excited!
Mr. FFF and I are going to stay a few extra days and make it a little vacay. So, if I’m MIA, you know why.
You know the best part of this story-that-actually-isn’t-a-story-I-just-felt-like-calling-it-that?
I haven’t even started to pack. UGH. My life. I always do things that I don’t need to do.
Liiiiike bake 42 billion gluten free cupcakes, eat all the cupcakes, and then fall into a cupcake coma and forget to pack.
I can’t confirm or deny that is a real scenario though. I’m leaning towards “it is” though
Please tell me ya’ll also put the procrastinate in procrastinators too? Whatever that means.
Quinoa Salad/bowls/I-don’t-really-know-what-to-call-it-except-yum. Right.
This dinner is brought to you by long Wednesdays where I really just want a mojito for dinner, but Mr. FFF say’s that’s not an acceptable dinner, and I will probably have some in Miami, so MAYBE I should eat some real food.
That man and his logical-ness. Can’t handle it.
But, you guys, these Quinoa salad/bowl things are going to blow your taste buds right out of the water (Which I’m not really sure that they should be there anyway, so you’re welcome.)
The smokey, grill-y chicken and the sweet..umm..pinapple-y? Pineapple is balanced with the perfect CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH from some macadamia nuts. Ya’ll know how I feel about the crunch. I <3 it.
Plus, there’s the easiest marinade in the world – honey, lime juice, and mint. SO PHRESH. SO TANGY.
Even if you hate me and my life adventures in Palm Tree land remember these 2 facts:
- I grew up in Canada, I did my time in igloos. (I might be lying about igloos)
- Make these for dinner and you’ll totally think you’re sitting on a beach in the sunshine state.
TIME TO PACK….Maybe.
