I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Colourful Quinoa and Strawberry Salad

I like what balsamic gives to strawberries, but if you want a lighter dressing change up the balsamic for a white wine or apple cider vinegar.

3 cups cooked and cooled quinoa
2 tbsps fresh cilantro, chopped
1/2 yellow pepper, chopped
1 celery stalk and leaves, chopped
1 cup chopped strawberries

1/4 cup lime juice
3 tbsps balsamic vinegar
6 tbsps olive oil
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp ground cumin

Prepare your first 5 ingredients and mix them in a large bowl.
Mix the dressing together and stir into the salad.  
Refrigerating the salad for a couple of hours gives the flavours a chance to blend.
Great as a main or side dish
