Easy Radish Sausage Quinoa Salad

I love this Radish Sausage Quinoa Salad because of all the flavors and textures it has going on. There’s the ever so slightly caramelized, soft, onions, fresh ginger, crisp celery and crunchy radishes, soft and nutty quinoa and flavor-jammed Eckrich Jalapeno & Cheddar Smoked Sausage Links.

While my daughter and I love to have Eckrich Turkey Skinless Smoked Sausage Rope with eggs and avocado for breakfast or sliced up on flatbread for dinner, this was our first time trying Eckrich Jalapeno & Cheddar Smoked Sausage Links. The slight kick from the jalapeno as well as creamy cheddar in Eckrich Jalapeno & Cheddar Smoked Sausage did not disappoint. This was so flavorful that I opted not to use any of my usual spices when I used it in this simple Radish Sausage Quinoa Salad.

Just like these Easy Zucchini Sausage Flatbreads, this Radish Sausage Quinoa Salad is not only easy to pull together, but it doesn’t require any elaborate measurements either. I used roughly 3 celery stalks and about a half dozen radishes along with an onion, garlic, and a half cup or so of leftover cooked quinoa.

But you can use bell peppers, broccoli, and cous cous instead. Or, Brussels sprouts, cabbage and even black rice, if you wish. However, make sure you use an onion, some fresh ginger and fresh garlic and, the star of this Radish Sausage Quinoa Salad: Eckrich Jalapeno & Cheddar Smoked Sausage Links!

This Radish Sausage Quinoa Salad is not only easy to pull together, but it doesn’t require any elaborate measurements either - it is flavor packed and on your dinner table in less than 30 minutes!

With sunny and warm evenings here in Georgia, it is hard to stay indoors. After work, I often join my daughter in taking our two dogs for long walks through our new neighborhood. Some evenings, I like puttering around in my new tiny yard. But, all that outdoor time after work leaves me with very little time to prepare dinner.

As I’d much rather throw something together than pick up take-out, I have been resorting to quick and easy dinners like those Zucchini Sausage Flatbreads and this Radish Sausage Quinoa Salad that don’t need a specific recipe and can be prepared with ingredients I have lying around.

I have to look for these sausages next time I'm out and about...they sound delicious! Cheddar and jalapeno is always a winning combo. Love the pairing with quinoa...makes for a hearty lunch or dinner! Bet it's great for meal prep too (which I love to do). Happy Monday lovely :)

I eat a ton of salads and a ton of quinoa too, so this is right up my alley. And I happen to love radishes so I'll definitely have to try this! Have a great week, Shashi!

I absolutely love smoked sausage, so this one is a no-brainer for me! But as I looked at the recipe, I remembered how much I like radishes. It's been a while since I've used radishes in a salad (no excuse why not...I just forgot how much I liked 'em), so I totally need to make this recipe soon. It sounds like a delicious weeknight recipe for sure! I'm sure you gals are warmer than us, but it's getting warm enough up here to go to the park with Robbie after preschool or putter around the yard. I love this time of the year!
