#GetTheDish Super Quinoa Salad + More Vegan Options at 3 in 1, Vida Downtown

I was so excited when I heard Vida Downtown's 3in 1 restaurant was revamping its menu seeing as it's one of my favourite hotels in Dubai.  Chef James Knight-Pacheco has put a creative spin on fresh organic ingredients drawing his inspiration from European flavours and Middle Eastern tastes to create truly unique dishes that are bespoke in style and modern in concept, which he claims is cohesive with the boutique and urban vibe of Vida Downtown, and I can't help but agree. 

While the new menu is packed with creative mains like the Drop the Bass roasted Seabass, The Griller lamb chops, the Aïoli or the Veal 2 ways. It also features vegan and vegetarian friendly which is good news to  those plant lovers out there! Some of the new dishes include the  Mr. Aubergine main, the Pea and Mint starter, the Lean Green salad and the topic of today's blog post the Super Quinoa Salad! 

This  dish is already becoming a favourite for the health conscious diners Vida and it's really easy to make.  Bonus? It's high in protein and high in slow releasing fibers that are needed to keep you going throughout the day.
