This recipe may strike you as super weird at first, even if you generally make quinoa salad like it’s going out style.

Whether you add Mexican spices and vegetables, do it Greek style with tomato, feta, and olives, or just throw in whatever vegetables you happen to have with a little olive oil and lemon, it’s generally a savory dish.

Not here.

We toss the super grain with sweet berries, because…why not? And guess what? It works. Like, really works.

Berry Quinoa Salad
  1. Drizzle cooked quinoa with olive oil and lime juice; toss with fork to separate grains and season with pepper to your liking.
  2. Add blueberries, strawberries, and peaches to quinoa and toss lightly.
  3. Serve quinoa mixture on top of spinach.


Compared to other grains, quinoa is significantly higher in calcium and protein and delivers lots of phytonutrients, and when you combine it with superfoods like blueberries and spinach? You’ve got a seriously nutrient-dense meal on your hands.
