Quinoa Salad




Here is a fresh summer salad.  You can mix up the fruit to suit your likes, but the recipe I used is as follows:

Dressing

1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon mustard powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

Salad:
6 cups spinach
2 cups fresh strawberries - cleaned and sliced
1 cup blueberries
1  11 ounce can mandarin oranges
1 nectarine, diced
1 mango, diced
2 green onions, sliced
1 cup quinoa, cooked according the package

Mix all dressing ingredients together and chill while preparing the salad.

Combine all salad incredients.  If you want the recipe to work the next day as leftovers, serve the dressing on the side, otherwise toss with the dressing right before serving.  Enjoy!
