Lately I have been making all kind of main course quinoa salads against the protest of my husband, who continues to argue that salad should only be a side dish. I am dead set on changing his mind and am trying to do so one salad at a time. This Quinoa Herb Greek Salad with White Beans was a real challenge since it is both a salad dinner and a meatless dinner - two big no-no's in his book. But we are slowly making progress.

While he wouldn't call this dinner, he did say it was delicious. And truth be told, he ate this alongside some rotisserie chicken I had set aside in case this very thing happened. All in all, I would call this one successful salad and one small step towards making salad a dinner option in out household.
