The Arugula Salad That Will Make Carnivores Cry

You think I'm kidding? I'm not. My cyber friend Alyssa over at Queen of Quinoa knows how to please any palate. Not only is it the type of dish I call "vegan without even noticing", it's also gluten-free. This savory salad combines roasted squash, pomegranate seeds (in season now! Can't find a whole pomegranate? You can buy the fresh arils in this handy container from POM Wonderful) and an amazing dressing of a little whole-grain mustard, apple cider vinegar and olive oil. Get the recipe here. I promise your meat-eating friends won't be sad. They might even stop asking you "What's with the whole vegan thing?" ad nauseam.

Get more tantalizing gluten-free delights from Alyssa at Queen of Quinoa, or follow her on Twitter @AlyssaRimmer.

And while you're on a quinoa kick (it's a thing), check out some of her amazing recipes in this Reader's Digest slideshow of creative quinoa recipes. Hey, you might even decide to your reward yourself for eating this healthy salad, with a healthy sweet finish of "Reese's" Quinoa CrispyTreats." (Just swap honey for maple syrup or agave nectar to make it 100% vegan). You might want to make an extra batch; those meat-guzzlers will be looting the serving platter for seconds.
