This Balsamic Quinoa Salad is not only a flavorful and healthy option, but it also lends itself well to meal prepping. By preparing this salad in advance and portioning it out into containers, you can save time and ensure you have a nourishing meal ready to go whenever hunger strikes. It’s perfect for busy weekdays, work lunches, or whenever you need a quick and satisfying meal on the go.

Add this mixture to your meal prep container and layer the arugula on top. This will allow the ingredients to hold onto that tangy balsamic flavor while keeping the arugula fresh (because let’s be real, soggy greens are not it)! Then, when you’re ready to eat just give everything a quick mix!
