Quinoa Fruit Salad


  • 1 cup dry quinoa, pre-rinsed

  • 2 cups water

  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries

  • 1/2 cup fresh strawberries

  • 1/2 cup mandarin oranges

  • 1/2 cup mango chunks

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • Juice of 1 lime

  • 1 teaspoon honey

  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped mint leaves


  1. Over medium-high heat bring water and quinoa to a boil, reduce heat to a low-boil, cover and cook approximately 15 minutes or until quinoa has absorbed most of the water. Turn off the heat and leave the covered quinoa on the burner for another 5 minutes. Allow to cool then refrigerate until chilled.

  2. Combine the chilled quinoa with the fruit in a large bowl. Stir to combine. Add the olive oil, lime juice and honey in a jar with a lid and shake. Toss with the salad and sprinkle on the fresh mint leaves.
