McKenzie Makes: Quinoa Fruit Salad!

If the past two weeks posts (and today’s) are any indication… it looks like I’m obsessed with summer salads! But instead of posting another savory salad, I went with one that can be enjoyed at breakfast, lunch or dinner! This easy and healthy quinoa salad with summer fruits is very light and just wonderfully delicious!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup red quinoa
  • 1 large lime, juiced
  • 3 TBL honey
  • 2 TBL finely chopped fresh mint
  • 1 1/2 cups blackberries, halved
  • 1 1/2 cups strawberries, sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups kiwi, chopped
  • 2 cups water
  • pinch of salt

To Make: 

  • Rinse quinoa under cold water using a strainer
  • add quinoa, water and salt to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat
  • boil for 5 minutes then turn heat to low and let simmer for 15 minutes or until water is absorbed
  • remove from heat, fluff with a fork and let cool
  • in a medium bowl whisk lime juice, honey and mint and set aside
  • in a large bowl combine quinoa and fruit and pour mint/lime/honey “dressing” over and mix well
  • can be served cold or at room temperature
  • enjoy!
