Dr. McDougall's Pistachio Citrus Quinoa Salad

I'm a huge fan of Dr. McDougall's Soup, especially the Spring Onion. So simple to make and it tastes wonderful. On my last trip to the store, I saw this Dr. McDougall's Pistachio Citrus Quinoa Salad. It's not soup, but I still had to give it a try. I love quinoa and couscous, so it felt like a no-brainer. At first I thought Howard Dean was on the package, which was weird, but it's Dr. McDougall of course!

As you can see, the salad isn't super photogenic, but don't let that fool you. It packs a lot of flavor and is perfectly filling. Upon the first taste, I noticed a strong citrus zing and a heartiness from the quinoa, couscous, pistachios and almonds. My only complaint is I would consider this more of a side dish instead of a sole meal, but that's a personal preference. Also, it's called a "salad" but it's warm. The package suggests the Pistachio Citrus Quinoa Salad over a bed of greens and I would have to agree with that.

Bottom line: if you're looking for a quick, filling and healthy quinoa bowl, this might be right up your alley!



  1. i LOVE dr. McDougall's! i need to try this one!

  2. Haha, Dr. McDougs totally looks a little Howard Dean-esque!! I love these little meals, but they are so tiny!! Definitely side dishes for me.

    1. I agree. You think it's going to be the size of the cup. But truthfully it filled me up. Weird huh?

  3. hahaha, Howard Dean. Imagine if Howard Stern came out with packaged soups. Scary thought. I like everything in this mini meal.

  4. I think Stern can come up with a good dish... maybe if his wife cooks it
