Red, White, & Blue Quinoa Berry Salad

Red, White, & Blue Quinoa Berry Salad

Posted on Wednesday, July 3, 2013 in Veggie Dishes Everyone Loves

Quinoa has an almost neutral flavor, so it just soaks up all the deliciousness of the easy honey-lime dressing, which complements the bright bursts of berries perfectly. I went with blueberries, strawberries, and red currants, but just about any fresh fruit combo will do wonderfully.
