Quinoa Salad Wraps with Peach Salsa


Sometimes life gets busy and all I really have time for is a bunch of yummy things thrown into a tortilla wrap. I made a big batch of this quinoa salad and have been eating it all week. It is really easy and is colorful, too!



 Quinoa Salad Wraps with Peach Salsa

Quinoa Salad Wraps
enough for about 6 small wraps, adapted from cafe johnsonia

1 cup quinoa, cooked
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 small avocado, diced
juice of 1 lime
2 handfuls of baby spinach, shredded
tortillas or wraps of your choice
 
Peach Salsa
adapted from keepin' it kind

1 peach, diced
2 medium tomatoes, diced
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
juice of 1/2 lime
salt to taste

Cook your quinoa according to package directions. Cook the beans over medium heat until heated through.
Mix all salad ingredients together. Place in a tortilla, top with the peach salad, wrap up and enjoy!


I love when something I make will last me through the week. I always take leftovers for lunch to work, but my husband almost never does. I wonder how much of that is just habit? What are your favorite things to pack for school/work/to-go lunches?


Thanks for stopping by!

    1. That is what I try to do too, sometimes it works well and other times I just never remember what I have in the freezer!
