Quinoa Berry Salad

Written by Diana - May 31, 2010 8 Comments

We went to a family/friend gathering at my brother in law’s today.  Though the day was a little warm, sitting under the shade trees, it was a pleasant cookout with lots of great food.  My contribution was Quinoa Berry Salad.  I went out and picked some parsley and mint to add a little hint of something. When I asked my husband if I should add some walnuts, the answer was a resounding yes.  I’m not a big fan of syrup for the berries, I want it less sweet, so that I can taste the sweetness of the berries, so instead I added Raspberry Walnut Vinaigrette.   This salad went over so well, the two year old little boy from next door kept coming back for more.

Ingredients:

Put all the ingredients into the bowl (except the vinaigrette) and toss.  Pour the vinaigrette over top, and toss a little more.
