Quinoa Salmon Salad

Aug 30th, 2017 by The Blood Type Diet

Salmon is one of the rare proteins that is nearly beneficial across the board and also doesn't land on any Blood Type's avoid list. By pairing it with the universally neutral quinoa, you can have a delicious, hearty, and healthy meal that is as easy to prepare as it is to pack and take on the go! Though it's great for adults too, this dish was featured in our September 2017 Newsletter as part of our three-recipe Kids School Lunch compilation, which also included Turkey Breast Strips with Cannellini Bean Dip and Trail Mixes Right 4 Each Type. Make all three for a lunch that kids and adults alike can enjoy!
