This is one of my favorite recipes and it is very light and healthy. Even my little ones like it, because it is a "flavor explosion" according to Kennith, my 8 year old.
Blueberry Quinoa Salad
1 cup quinoa (grain like couscous or bulgar)
2 cups water
salt to taste
1 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
4 oz reduced fat feta cheese, crumbled
1/3 cup chopped toasted walnuts
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup diced red bell pepper (i had to use green, all I had)
1/4 to 1/3 cup of Wishbone Raspberry Hazelnut dressing
1) For the salad, in a heavy saute pan, toast the quinoa on medium high heat, stirring constantly, until it begins to brown, about 5 minutes
2) Meanwhile, bring 2 cups of water to boiling, then carefully pour water into the quinoa. Add salt to taste; cover, reduce heat to low and cook 15 minutes. transfer quinoa to a large bowl; let cool.
3) Add blueberries, feta cheese, walnuts, parsley and bell pepper; mix gently. Drizzle dressing over salad; stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.
