I threw this salad together last minute for a Mother’s Day dinner so I don’t have the exact amount of each ingredient but I can tell you that it was so good that I passed it around saying ‘You don’t want any of this, do you?’ Fresh organic strawberries tend to make me feel ungenerous.
It was so bright tasting and fresh…and the hazelnuts… it pretty much made me feel like this:
(replace the ‘seven’ with strawberries and you can pretty much taste this salad)
Here’s what was in it:
- Fresh organic strawberries (the ‘seven’ of the salad)
- Red Quinoa
For the dressing I had some leftover balsamic reduction (about 1.5 tbsp) with a clove of garlic and mixed it in before leaving for dinner.
Also HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!! We took my mom to Nuba tonight for some amazing Lebanese food. If you’re in Vancouver, it’s worth checking out one of their locations for their very vegan-friendly menu.
I would have taken some photos of the food (get the cauliflower people!) but my co-workers can attest that the last time we were there I literally almost caused some eye injuries reaching for the hummus the moment it was put on the table. (ya, sorry about that again guys…)
