Red White and Blue Quinoa #july4 Salad

Already high in protein, we love this #quinoa salad from well plated, the perfect side dish OR main. We added a little of our PowerBlends Goji Coconut for more #fiber, #omega3s,  #plantbased protein and a delicious tropical touch. The honey, lime dressing gives this salad a great kick and the fruit makes the texture a little more robust than your average quinoa salad. AND it's easy. Checks every box.

  • 3/4 cup dry quinoa
  • 16 ounces fresh strawberries
  • 9 ounces fresh blueberries

  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves, julienned

FOR THE DRESSING:

  • 2 tablespoons honey (use maple syrup or agave to make vegan)
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Directions:

2. Trim and quarter the strawberries, then add them to the bowl along with the blueberries almonds and mint. Pour the dressing over the top, then toss gently to combine. Place in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
