  • 1/2 cup organic cooked rainbow quinoa
  • 2-3 tablespoons Lemon Vinaigrette Dressing (recipe below)
Directions:

In a large stainless steel bowl, combine all ingredients EXCEPT the blueberries and cooked quinoa. Chop using a meza luna. Add blueberries, cooked quinoa and dressing after chopping; mix well.  Makes 2 servings.

Lemon Vinaigrette Dressing
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed organic lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons Annie's Naturals organic honey mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoons herbs de provence
