I have had fresh basil growing in the backyard for a few months now and haven't had an opportunity to use any of it, so my main goal this weekend was to make a NEW recipe with said basil.
After rummaging through the fridge I found a few other delicious ingredients and a salad was born.
Pine-ing Over Quinoa Salad
(serves 4 as a side, 2 as a meal)
2T fresh basil, chopped
1/3 cup sliced strawberries
1 cup quinoa, cooked
1/4 cup non-fat feta cheese
1/2 cup pine nuts, toasted
Over a medium-low heat toast pine nuts. Keep a watchful eye on them as they can burn easily!
Once quinoa has cooked and cooled place in a large bowl
Add strawberries, feta, pine nuts and basil
Toss and serve
Don't forget to print and pin this! You'll want to make this salad again and again!
