Sweet + Healthy: Berry And Basil Quinoa Salad

Berries and basil and quinoa oh my! This combination of sweet dressing, savory quinoa, and fresh fruit is the definition of a perfect summer salad. With just a few simple ingredients you’ll have a dish that’s perfect for picnics, weekends at the cabin, an on the go snack, or easy to pack lunch. I came home one day to find the tupperware of this delicious creation completely empty. “That salad you made was unexpectedly very good,” my mom confessed….I don’t blame her though, this stuff is so darn good. I will most definitely be making a double batch next time. Try it for yourself, recipe below!
