Tomato Basil Quinoa Salad

Gluten Free/Grain Free/Vegan/Nut Free

Spring is here!

Okay, I'll ignore the fact that we are in the 100s and it's almost summer.

When I think of spring I think of fresh food, flowers and being outside. So what better than a dish that would be great as a side item to a picnic! 

So, whip this up, pack some sunscreen and head outside....preferably in the shade... or spread out a blanket and have a living room picnic!

Most importantly stay cool and Enjoy!

What you need:
3 cups quinoa, cooked, still warm is best
3/4 cup grape tomatoes, organic, sliced in half
1/4 cup basil, organic, chopped or torn
1/4 red onion, organic, finely diced
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 Tbls honey or vegan alternative
1 Tbls extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

What you do:
Mix all dressing ingredients together in a bowl and whisk until well blended.
Mix all salad ingredients together, in a large mixing bowl, and toss.
Pour dressing over salad and mix.
