Recipe of the Week!

Summer Quinoa Salad
I know summer is over, but I'm a little behind in my recipes. And really every produce item is basically available year round so I'm sure you can still make this now, or in February if you want. I love quinoa. Mostly I like it cold like in this recipe, but I have a hot quinoa recipe coming up soon. Apparently its some wonder food, so it's worth a try.

1 cup quinoa (uncooked)
Arugula/Spinach mix
Olive Oil
Lemon Juice
Salt and Pepper

Cook quinoa according to the directions on the package. When quinoa is cooked add olive oil, lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste. Let chill in the refrigerator for a few hours. Remove from fridge and add spinach/arugula (about 4 or so oz.), sliced strawberries (I probably used about 3/4 pound), and a couple handfuls of blueberries. Mix together and add olive oil or lemon if needed.
