Strawberry, Quinoa & Edamame Salad
The nutty flavor of red quinoa pairs beautifully with fresh strawberries, edamame, almonds and toasted coconut in this cold grain salad. Be sure to chill at least 2 hours so the salad can absorb the full flavor of the balsamic dressing.
Tip: To toast coconut, spread in a shallow baking pan lined with parchment paper. Bake in a 350 degrees F oven for 5 to 10 minutes or until golden, shaking pan once or twice, watching closely to avoid burning.
