Beautiful avocado blueberry quinoa plate of mixed greens stacked with new corn, red onion, tart feta, cleaved pistachios, and hurled in a delightful cilantro lime dressing. This scrumptious veggie lover quinoa serving of mixed greens is ideal for summer snacks, gatherings, and picnics.

Since acknowledging the amount all of you appear to appreciate quinoa plans, I currently attempt to put out a couple of new quinoa servings of mixed greens each mid year since they're simple and incredible to pack for a speedy, solid lunch.

Initially, I needed to make this with taboo dark rice (my fav!) yet Abra persuaded me to do it with quinoa rather and it ended up being shockingly flavorful. A remarkable blend of flavors, surfaces and summer products of the soil veggies.
