  • 4 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey

For the Salad:

  • 1 cup blackberries
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup roughly chopped Blue Diamond Honey Roasted Cinnamon Almonds
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped mint
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped basil

Instructions

  1. First, make the dressing. In a small bowl or jar, whisk together the orange zest, orange juice, lemon juice, lime juice, honey, mint, and basil. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cooked quinoa, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, almonds, mint, and basil. Gently stir. Drizzle citrus honey dressing over the salad and gently stir again. Serve.
  3. Note-if you can't find red quinoa, you can use regular quinoa. Cook the quinoa according to package instructions. The quinoa can be made in advance. Make sure it is cool before making the salad. The salad is best the day it is made.
