Roasted Zucchini and Quinoa Salad


  • 2 zucchini or yellow squash, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups wild arugula
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa, cooled
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, divided
  • 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes packed in olive oil, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons sun-dried tomatoes packed in olive oil, finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place zucchini on a rimmed baking sheet and toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Bake until fork-tender, about 15 to 20 minutes. Set aside until cool.
