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.


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