Directions

1, Cook Quinoa just like white rice. You measure 2 to one (1C Quinoa to 2 C water). Bring to a boil, lower temperature and cover for approx. 14 minutes. Quinoa is very healthy for you, so cook and store in your refrigerator for up to a week. Add to just about anything! Please use cooled Quinoa for this recipe.

2. Rinse strawberries, trim tops and cut into a medium bowl. Add raisins & coconut flakes.

3. Slightly crush the pecans so they are not whole halves, add to bowl.

4. Dice mango, no skin, Be very careful as this is slippery! Add to bowl.

5. Add cooled quinoa & honey. Turn carefully with sppon to coat all of the above with honey.

6. Eat immediately or cover and store for maybe a day or less as the fruit will become mushy. Makes a refreshing dessert!

Equals 6 - 1/2C servings
**Only cooking time is for the Quinoa.

    Really, really good (and I don't care that much for coconut, but there's very little). I added blueberries and lemon zest. - 8/8/10

    This is a very tasty salad and can be modified using a variety of different whole grains. I like making it with a combination of brown rice/wild rice or as another member suggested, serving it over oatmeal. It is also delicious simply as a fruit salad without the addition of any whole grains. - 8/8/10
