Oh She Glows

Oh She Glows is my new favorite blog for food!!  She has some pretty amazing recipes up and I love making them at home.  Last night I made my own version of her Quinoa Almond Berry Salad... Both Jennie and I LOVED it!!! I would try a different grain next time for fun (and because I used up my couscous).

Couscous Berry Salad

1 cup dry whole wheat Israeli couscous
1 pint strawberries, sliced
16 oz. frozen fresh blueberries (1.5-2 cups)
2 cup diced fresh pineapple
2 tbsp organic honey
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
Dash of salt

1. Cook couscous according to package directions.
2. Meanwhile, chop the fruit and place in a large bowl.
3. Mix the dressing ingredients (honey, balsamic, lime juice, salt) in a small jar and adjust to taste if necessary. Note: You may have to double the dressing recipe if your salad is quite large.
4. Drain excess water from couscouc and add to large bowl with fruit. Combine. Pour on dressing and mix well. Serve immediately or chill in the fridge until serving time.
