Pesto Zucchini and Corn Quinoa Salad #vegan #healthy

A light zucchini and corn quinoa serving of mixed greens in a splendid lemon-y basil pesto dressing.

Despite the fact that fall is authoritatively here and the days are cooling, there is still a lot of zucchini around and I needed to give summer one final hurrah with this zucchini and corn quinoa plate of mixed greens with a basil pesto dressing. This serving of mixed greens is as simple as it sounds with the quinoa, sautéed zucchini and corn, the basil pesto dressing and I like to add a few chickpeas to round it out a bit alongside some green onions and toasted pine nuts as embellishment.

Extremely you should simply cook the quinoa, zucchini and corn and blend everything and you are finished! This pesto zucchini and corn quinoa serving of mixed greens makes for an extraordinary side or even a light feast and it's certain to light up your day!
