I’m sure many of you have heard of superfood salads. Quinoa and kale, and blah this and that superfood, but I promise you this one is different!
It’s not boring at all, it’s full of different flavours and textures, and it actually tastes delicious. It’s the opposite of of a boring salad, I promise!
You trust me right?
It’s so so tasty, and it honestly doesn’t feel like you’re forcing yourself eat a salad when all you wan is, eeerm, chocolate. Do you have those moments too?
Ahhh, I just love this salad.
It’s so easy to throw together, especially if you already have the cooked quinoa, and there is texture and flavour going that keeps it far away from being plain.
The puffed popcorn-like grains add such a different texture to this salad, and along with the slightly sweet and sour flavour of the goji berries, the meatiness of the black beans, the fluffy quinoa, and the plump sweetcorn, it’s just such a wholesome and filling salad.
I know, I know, it looks weird to put popcorn on a salad, and you might be thinking,
‘has she finally lost her mind?’
But it actually really works! It adds a different texture to it, a bit of an unexpected, and it just makes it even more fun. Because that’s what we’re working on here – making a salad fun!
This salad has been inspired by a delicious one I had in Melbourne, at Pillar of Salt. I loved it so I had it two days straight!
