blackened shrimp bowls with salsa ranch quinoa

I’m addicted to quinoa “bowls”. As I’ve begun to add healthier meals to my menus, quinoa bowls have consistently found their way back again and again. I love to make a big batch of quinoa, then add whatever healthy ingredients I have on hand throughout the week. Makes for easy, healthy lunches and casual dinners when I need to make something quick. “Eating the rainbow” is something I’ve taken to heart and it’s easy to do that with a healthy quinoa bowl!

For this particular quinoa bowl I made a quick sauce to maximize flavor, tossed it with the quinoa then added healthy toppings like black beans, avocado and tomatoes. I blackened some shrimp, gave them a quick roast and topped it all off. So healthy and so tasty! The sauce has just three ingredients: avocado, plain greek yogurt and Hidden Valley® For Everything Topping & Dip Salsa Ranch®. The sauce is great to keep on hand as a sandwich or wrap spread, too!

    when you call for the 1/4 cup hidden valley salsa ranch dip, are you saying to make a dip and add it, or does hidden valley have a ranch dip that is a salsa flavor?

      Hi Dana, Hidden Valley has a new ranch dip that is salsa flavor (they also have the new salsa flavor in mix form). I had to go to a few stores to find mine but it was worth it!
