Berry Quinoa Salad

Hope you all had a happy 4th of July weekend! At our get-together with the family, I brought this star-spangled side dish! Super light and refreshing, the quinoa and berries pair great with a delicious citrus-y dressing. And the leftovers are actually great for breakfast, especially with some plain greek yogurt! The recipe can easily be halved as well. I hope you’ll give it a try!
