Winter is ending soon so here is a little tasty preview of summer made with Quinoa to help get you in the mood. Quinoa is a gluten-free, protein-packed seed. It's a complete protein, containing all 9 essential amino acids. Add a side of lean protein to your salad and you've got a highly nutritious, balanced meal.

Servings: 6

Here's what you need...

  • 3/4 cup plain non-fat greek yogurt
  • 2 Tablespoons lime juice, divided
  • 1-15 fresh mint leaves, minced
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • optional dash of salt and pepper
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup green grapes, halved
  • 1/2 cup raspberries
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar

 

  1. In a small bowl combine the yogurt, 1 tablespoon lime juice and the mint. Pour over the cooked quinoa and mix well. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. In another bowl combine the fruit, agave nectar and remaining lime juice.
  3. Cover and refrigerate each bowl for 2 hours, to allow the flavors to emerge, then combine the fruit with the quinoa and serve.
