This is always a big hit at my house.


  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 cup Strawberries, hulled and chopped
  • 3 oz Goat Cheese, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup chopped arugula
  • 1 tbs basil, chopped
  • pinch salt
  • 2 tbs Red Onion, Chopped
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbs honey


  1. In a bowl add the quinoa, strawberries, goat cheese, basil, arugula and toss combine. In a separate bowl, whisk together the salt, onions, balsamic and honey. Drizzle the balsamic mixture over the quinoa/strawberry mixture and toss to coat. Serve immediately.


The key to this salad is to cook the quinoa the right way: rinse, drain, toast in a dry pan, not too much water (MUCH less than rice, for 1 cup quinoa use only 1.5 cups water), simmer in a pot with a vented lid for 16 minutes. This will give you fluffy NOT soggy quinoa every time!
