Quinoa Salad

1 C dry quinoa (cooked according to the directions on the package)
1 bag spinach (8 oz) (roughly chopped)
1/4 C red onion, thinly sliced
1 can Mandarin oranges
1 C blueberries
1 C blackberries
1/2 C pecans, chopped

  1. Cook quinoa according to the package directions and set aside to cool.
  2. Salad: In a large bowl, place the spinach and add the remaining ingredients, including the cooked quinoa. Toss until well combined.
  3. Dress the salad and toss.

We have eaten this salad when the quinoa was still warm and we have eaten in after it’s been chilled for a couple hours. Either are great options.

Dress the salad with your favorite fruit vinaigrette. Try raspberry, lemon or orange. We love the orange.
