I do love this guy’s recipes! And when I came across his berry quinoa salad recipe this morning I planned to make it for lunch. It sounded so good … and yet so familiar, and I wondered why. Then it dawned on me: it has all the ingredients I’d use in a tasty, healthy smoothie!!! (Yes, three exclamations marks, lol!)

The Guy in question is Kevin Lynch at ClosetCooking.

Summer berries are everywhere [and] are absolutely amazing in this berry quinoa salad in a citrus-y mint dressing! [And in this citrus-mint-berry-quinoa-Smoothie *smile*] The fresh berries, including strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries, are definitely the stars of the show here with the quinoa providing a healthy base for the salad!
