Southwest BBQ chicken quinoa salad is a quick, easy-to-make main dish that is perfect for lunch or dinner. With protein-packed quinoa, BBQ chicken, black beans, veggies, and southwest spices, it’s a healthy, flavorful meal.
Recently, Red Gold Tomatoes and I held an in-store demo at Marsh Supermarket in Carmel, Indiana. The demos were part of Marsh Supermarket’s Taste of Indiana, presented by Indiana Grown and Red Gold Tomatoes.
I made 2 very simple Red Gold Tomatoes recipes: Sassy Chicken Salad and Southwest BBQ Chicken Quinoa Salad. Both were easy to assemble and perfect for get togethers or pitch-in’s!
If you are not super familiar with quinoa, never fear! This is what I call a “complete grain” meaning that it has almost everything you need in 1 simple ingredient. You can now find uncooked AND cooked quinoa almost everywhere at many price points. Remember- it is like a rice. It will take on the taste of whatever ingredients you use. Like a blank canvas!
Here’s the Southwest BBQ Chicken Quinoa Salad recipe. Enjoy!
