Quinoa and Spring Mix Salad

This is one of my favorite salads. Most of the Restaurants I eat at are offering so many more Vegetarian options. My two new favorites are Zo√ęs Kitchen and Mod Market. The menus are incredibly vegetarian friendly and.....healthy!

Quinoa and Spring Mix Salad:

4 C Spring Mix Greens
4 C Cooked Quinoa
1 C Fresh Blueberries
1/2 C Chopped Pecans
1 Avocado, diced
1/3 C Crumbled Feta Cheese

1/4 C Mayonnaise (Low-fat is OK, if you think it will make you feel like it's healthier)
My personal choice of dressing is always Olive Oil and Apple Cider Vinegar.
1 TBS Plain Yogurt
2 TBS Granulated Sugar
4 tsp Whole Milk
1 1/2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1 1/2 tsp Poppy Seeds

Whisk all ingredients for the dressing in a jar and refrigerate 1 hour.

Toss all Salad ingredients in a Serving Bowl.
Toss the Dressing into the Salad just prior to serving.

Peace in the Kitchen!
