This quinoa salad is the perfect healthy lunch or dinner side combining winter's bounty and the antioxidants and health benefits of the wild blueberry. Wyman's of Maine is one of the largest growers and processors of wild blueberries in the U.S. The growing season for wild blueberries is short, but Wyman's allows you to snack on these tasty, tart and sweet berries all year by quick freezing the berries within 24 hours of harvest. The berries are as fresh as the day they were picked, traveling from farm to freezer to table.  Recipe courtesy of Wyman's of Maine

Summer green beans are here! Perhaps other beans, too, so substitute any of the three beans with what you can get on sale or from your garden... or the neighbors'. Canned garbanzos, pintos, or black beans are fine, too, in this beautiful and delicious summer salad that works as a side dish or protein-filled vegetarian entrée. Quinoa is a light, whole grain with plenty of protein itself; once you try it, you'll invite it back to your table again and again.
