This Red, White & Blue Berry Quinoa Salad combines strawberries, blueberries, and feta in a light lemon vinaigrette. Perfect for Memorial Day, 4th of July, and all your summer barbecues!
Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was interesting, to say the least…..filled with lots of recipes (like this yummy quinoa salad), lots of play dates, and packing for my trip to California!!!!
Wait – I didn’t tell you about California? Nope, I really don’t think I did. Well, now you know. I left this morning for a 3-day blogging retreat in Carmel Valley.
I must say – I am filled with all kinds of mixed emotions. Excitement, gratitude, nervousness, and even a touch of sadness….I forgot how hard it is to leave your kids at home! Especially when they’re not used to it! But this was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up – 10 food bloggers hanging out on a ranch in California!? No way was I going to miss it.
So….I’ll be sure to tell you all about it once I get back, and if you want updates along the way, I’ll be posting a bunch on Instagram! But for now, back to this salad. It’s so good, you guys! As in I ate the whole thing this weekend. And…..it’s perfect for Memorial Day or 4th of July! Red, white, blue, and delicious. What more could you ask for??
