Quinoa Fruit Salad with a Mint Balsamic Vinaigrette

Happy Monday!
This quinoa fruit salad is full of so many flavors and is so light and refreshing! Quinoa is gluten-free, contains protein, potassium, and vitamins. I want to eat this salad everyday! It is perfection! 
Let's get to cooking!

Quinoa Fruit Salad with a Mint Balsamic Vinaigrette 
  • 2 cups red quinoa
  • 1 cup strawberries, sliced
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup kiwis, chopped
  • 1/2 cup raspberries
  • 1/4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1 bunch of mint, roughly chopped
  • salt and pepper, to taste
Whisk together balsamic vinegar, avocado oil, mint, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Set aside. 

Bring 4 cups of salted water to a boil in a pot. Once boiling, add red quinoa, stir, and reduce to medium-low heat and let cook for about 12 minutes. Stir occasionally.

Once the quinoa has finished cooking, transfer to a large bowl. Once it has cooled, add in fruits, and vinaigrette. Mix until thoroughly combined.  Wrap bowl and place in fridge until ready to serve. Enjoy!
