I recently came across a new way to enjoy quinoa, as the base for a fruit salad. It is pretty simple to make. You just need some cooked quinoa, some yogurt, fruit, nuts and maybe some honey. Cooked quinoa keeps well in the fridge so if you make some extra you will have some on hand to enjoy whenever you want without having to wait 20 minutes to cook it. You can use whatever fruit that is available at the time. I had just come across some blood oranges and I threw them in along with some blueberries, kiwi and a banana. The quinoa fruit salad was a light and tasty treat.
1 cup quinoa

1. Rinse the quinoa.
2. Bring the quinoa and water to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes.
3. Let the quinoa cool and assemble the salad.
