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.
