Quick, hearty and super healthy - this Quinoa Arugula Salad with Lemon Thyme Dressing is going to be your new favorite salad | ThisSavoryVegan.com

Do you ever go to a vegan restaurant and feel like everything on the menu is “typical vegan food” – everything is made out of quinoa, lentils or mushrooms and is super duper healthy and unappetizing? It’s not that I don’t like those things, but something I always try to do with the food I share here is make it exciting and instantly appetizing.

With that being said, this salad may sound like “typical vegan food” on the surface, but I swear it is not only healthy but really tasty. You know I wouldn’t steer you wrong.

This salad is peppery from the arugula, acidic from the lemon dressing and earthy from the crunchy almonds and fresh quinoa. If you are looking something that is light and healthy, but still exciting, then this is the salad for you.
