  • Trim and quarter strawberries, add them, blueberries, shredded coconut and almonds. 

  • Pour dressing over top and mix gently.

  • Place in refrigerator until ready to serve. 



  • Whisk all the ingredients in a small mason jar, cover and shake to mix. 

I love this quinoa fruit salad! It is refreshing and high in protein.  It's perfect for breakfast, a snack and for Patriotic potluck gatherings!
