Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 20 minutes
Total: 35 minutes



  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 beetroots
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Mixed salad greens
  • Cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Cucumber, sliced
  • Red onion, thinly sliced
  • Fresh mint leaves, for garnish


  1. Preheat your grill or stovetop grill pan.

  2. Season the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil. Grill the chicken for about 8-10 minutes per side, or until cooked through. Set aside to cool.

  3. In a medium saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Add the quinoa, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15-20 minutes until all the liquid is absorbed. Fluff with a fork and set aside to cool.

  4. Peel and grate the beetroots. In a small bowl, mix together the grated beetroots, Greek yogurt, lemon juice, olive oil, ground cumin, salt, and pepper to create the beetroot yogurt dressing. Set aside.

  5. Once cooled, slice the grilled chicken breasts into thin strips.

  6. In a large bowl, combine the cooked quinoa, sliced chicken, mixed salad greens, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, and red onion. Toss with the beetroot yogurt dressing until well coated.

  7. Serve the salad in individual bowls or on plates, garnished with fresh mint leaves.
