Healthy Grilled Corn Caprese Quinoa Salad
This Healthy Grilled Corn Caprese Quinoa Salad has all the flavors of a classic caprese with added quinoa and corn. I love the crunch that the grilled corn brings to this dish. Caprese salad combines fresh mozzarella cheese, basil, and tomatoes to make one of the most delicious salads ever.
To make this salad, I start by cooking the quinoa and grilling some corn. I make a dressing from balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, maple syrup, mustard, olive oil, salt, and pepper. I use this to dress the salad made from quinoa, cherry tomatoes, green onions, mozzarella, and fresh basil. The end result is a caprese salad with crisp grilled corn and healthy quinoa.
To make this version of Grilled Corn Caprese Quinoa Salad, you will need the following ingredients:

Hands down one of the tastiest and most affordable salads i've seen on here since the grape salad thanks for sharing.
Fantastic recipe simple and flavorful I also really like the color of this meal all happy colors which makes my tummy happy :)
I didn't add the maple syrup but everything else blended well with this.
This is by far the best salad I've had at home that I freshly prepared myself.
Going to be making this corn caprese quinoa again soon it taste good.
WOW blast of flavors in my mouth and super zesty I really enjoyed this.
I much prefer lighter salads like the vegan black bean and sweet potato but this wasn't too bad if you want something on the heavy side.
Another perfect snack to munch on from my favorite person on here! Can't wait to see what you share with us next, keep it up Lilly.
So delicious and healthy!
