Quinoa-Berry Salad

There’s nothing quite like a bowl of quinoa and greens. And a few fresh raspberries and blackberries, too. So pretty and so easy to make. Just a few ingredients from my garden and a quick trip to the market for fresh berries. And voilà.

  • 1 pint raspberries, preferably organic
  • 1 Teaspoon dried basil
  • 2 Cups mixed greens
