Simple, fresh, and perfectly portioned for two, this main dish salad is great for a quiet weeknight. Just you? Enjoy the second portion for lunch tomorrow; it will hold up nicely.
Serves 2 (serving size: 2 cups)
1. Combine 3/4 cup water, quinoa, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 12 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and quinoa is tender. Cool quinoa mixture slightly.
2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle shrimp with remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add shrimp to pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until done.
3. Combine remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper, oil, lemon juice, dill, and honey in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add quinoa, shrimp, spinach, and remaining ingredients; toss gently to combine.
