This post in partnership with Walmart, thank you for supporting the brands I love!
When I heard on TikTok that Jennifer Aniston ate this salad everyday on the set of FRIENDS, I knew I had to try it!
It’s super simple to make and is packed with protein since it contains both quinoa and chickpeas. It’s so delicious and can stay in the fridge for about five days. I like to eat it on its own or as a side dish with some meat protein.
I purchased all of my ingredients to make this salad at Walmart – I always save money on our groceries with their everyday low prices and love trying the latest brands and flavors without breaking the bank.
I use Walmart’s Online Grocery service often for both pickup and delivery – it saves me time because their personal shoppers do the hard work so you can focus on all of your other commitments (like your busy work day, driving the kids to tennis practice, car line, play dates and more!)
I’m excited to share that new customers can use promo code TRIPLE10 to save $10 off of your first three Walmart pickup or delivery orders ($50 min. Restrictions & fees apply).
I hope y’all find Walmart’s Online Grocery service as convenient, time-saving and budget friendly as we do!

HOW TO PREPARE:
I cooked the quinoa first and then chopped all of the ingredients & mixed them together in a large bowl.
Then, I added 4 tablespoons of olive oil, the juice from a lemon and salt and pepper to taste! It seriously tastes even better the next day after it’s been refrigerated, but you can also eat it right after mixing it.
