Combining rice and quinoa or other legumes is a great way to add protein to meals. Try it in our Red Beans and Rice. However, you can also boost the protein in this tasty salad by adding cooked chicken, shrimp or tofu. Not only will these add-ins increase flavor but they’ll make for a more filling meal. If you’re a fan of avocado, add half a diced avocado for some added flavor and creaminess.
Not a fan of golden raisins? Swap them out for dried cranberries or cherries.
