Quinoa Berry Salad

Thad is out of town for 10 days and so I’m on my own for meals. So I decided to make life easy and whipped up a big batch of quinoa a couple days ago to mix in with things all week. I’ve made two different lunch salads with quinoa and fresh veggies and herbs from the garden, and this morning I just chopped up a bunch of berries to make this quinoa berry salad I saw on the Oh She Glows website. I can’t wait for lunch – I have both a quinoa cannellini bean salad and this berry salad waiting for me! I must admit I’ve already had a big spoonful of the berry salad and it was delicious! So delicious I knew I had to blog about it so the recipe would not be forever forgotten.
