Clean Eat Recipe: Spicy Citrus Quinoa Salad

Most PopularWhitney Carlson2 Comments

We've made quite a few things off of the Whole Foods Market app (that contains recipes) and we've never been disappointed. All of the dishes we've tried have been very flavorful and easy to make. This one is no different but I'll be honest with you...I told Scott that I would not be eating this and that it sounded disgusting. I was wrong and I found myself sneaking spoonfuls all throughout the process of making it! This Clean Eating Spicy Citrus Quinoa Salad has the perfect hint of sweet and spicy and is the perfect side dish for your meal and great for parties!

  • 1 small bunch red grapes (1-2 cups), halved
