Ingredients

    16 Large Strawberries, fresh
    20 Pecan halves or 1/4 Cup, broken or crushed
    1/4 Cup Raisins, Golden seedless (not packed)
    1 Mango, fresh, diced without skin
    1 tablesppon of Honey (Orange honey)
    1/4 Cup Coconut, unsweetened, flaked
    2 tablespoons of Quinoa, white, pre-cooked/cooled




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.

    I didn't have Quinoa but used couscous instead. Used peaches in place of mango and it still made a good salad! - 3/12/10
