Strawberry-Mango Quinoa Salad
1 c. quinoa, well rinsed
1 1/2 c. water
1/4 t. salt
1 c. strawberries, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 of a mango, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
3/4 c. 1/2-inch diced unpeeled English cucumber
1 1/2 T. chopped fresh mint
2 T. lime juice
1/2 t. lime zest
1 T. honey
1 T. sour cream (or plain yogurt can be subbed)
1/4 c. olive oil
salt & pepper to taste
Prepare the quinoa: In a medium saucepan combine the quinoa, water and 1/4 t. salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until the liquid is just absorbed, about 15 minutes. Spread the cooked quinoa out on a baking sheet to cool for about 20 minutes.
In a large bowl whisk together lime juice, zest, honey, sour cream and olive oil. Add the cooled quinoa, strawberries, mango, cucumber and mint. Toss well to combine and season with salt & pepper. (Pepper is optional.) Serve immediately.
