This healthy twist on the classic orzo salad swaps in protein packed, gluten free quinoa for the pasta for a lighter option. Lycopene rich tomatoes, fiber packed chickpeas, and immune boosting garlic and onions round out this superfood salad. The Greek Mediterranean diet is lauded for its health benefits, and Greeks are among the longest living populations in the world. A focus on vegetables, whole grains, fish, and olive oil give this lifestyle its longevity boosting powers. Lucky for us, these dietary tenants are easy to uphold wherever you live. For a more substantial meal, add some grilled salmon, shrimp, or chicken to this salad.
