After filling up my brown box at Whole Foods with all of their California quinoa salad, I realized that I should probably just make it. It seemed super easy and I loved all of the flavors they have going on in it. I sometimes get asked how I get inspiration, but a lot of it is already around you. I love recreating dishes that I have at some of my favorite restaurants. This was just as delish as getting it at the store and now I will be able to eat on it for the whole week, so no more buying at Whole Foods. At least not for this week :) You can adjust this to your liking and it makes a bunch so it's perfect for meal prep!
