Recipe: Quinoa Fruit Salad and Honey Lime Dressing

Quinoa with blueberries, strawberries, mango and a refreshing honey lime dressing. This easy and healthy Quinoa Fruit Salad is by our own talented, in-house chef-instructor Will McDonough, and goes well with any summer meal.

 

INGREDIENTS:

FOR THE QUINOA:
1 cup quinoa (I used Red Quinoa)

2 cups water

Pinch of salt

FOR THE HONEY LIME DRESSING:
Juice of 1 large lime

3 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint

FOR THE FRUIT:
1 1/2 cups blueberries

1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries

1 1/2 cups chopped mango

Extra chopped mint, for garnish-optional

DIRECTIONS:
Using a strainer, rinse the quinoa under cold water. Add quinoa, water and salt to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 5 minutes. Turn the heat to low and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until water is absorbed. Remove from heat and fluff with a fork. Let quinoa cool to room temperature.

To make the Honey Lime Dressing: In a medium bowl, whisk the lime juice, honey and mint together until combined.

In a large bowl, combine quinoa, blueberries, strawberries and mango. Pour honey lime dressing over the fruit salad and mix until well combined. Garnish with additional mint, if desired. Serve at room temperature or chilled.

Note-Use your favorite fruit in this salad. Blackberries, peaches, kiwi, raspberries, pineapple, grapes, etc. are all great options!
