Costco Quinoa Salad, Premade Costco Food

Costco sells this premade Quinoa Salad for $4.79 / pound. Scroll down for photos. This is one of my favorite premade meals at Costco. It’s easy, cheap & healthy. Whenever I go on vacation & want a quick healthy bite to eat, I try to grab this. It stores well in a hotel refrigerator & has all the fixings. It’s loaded with complex carbohydrates & vegetables. It’s also a nice break from eating meat for all you vegetarians out there. Another great way to use this is as a side dish for dinner. Spruce it up with some chopped onions & cilantro & drizzle a homemade dressing on top. Just make sure to serve it in a dish, so your guests think it’s homemade =). You end up with about 2 pounds of food, so it’s around $9 – $10 for the container. Here is a little more information about this Costco Quinoa Salad…….

Costco Quinoa Salad

For being a vegetarian meal, it really is filling. The brown rice & quinoa give you sustained energy for hours. It also keeps you feeling full for longer without being bloated. The only thing I would like better is if the dressing came on the side. It would be nice to be able to add your own dressing. It would be great with a cilantro lime dressing or a mango dressing. I don’t mind eating it right out of the refrigerator even if it is a little crunchy. It depends on your taste though. I recommend mixing it well & warming it up. There are some copycat recipes out there if you’d like to make it. If you’re looking for some alternative quinoa bowls, make sure to check these out……

  1. How long can I keep the quinoa salad before it is no longer safe to eat? The container is waaay to much for one!

    1. I wouldn’t keep it longer than 3 – 5 days depending. It is a lot to eat, but I find that it gets mushy and not so good after this much time. I also go by smell
