Meatless Monday 13: Easy summer salads (non-green) with berries
Berries, berries! I live in the land of berry heaven. Here are two ways I've recently incorporated berries into our meals. Above, garbanzo beans, oil and vinegar, pepper, a bit of blue cheese and currants. It was fabulous!
Below, one of my favorites, quinoa salad with blueberries and hazelnuts, two of Oregon's prize crops. Recipe from Bob's Red Mill. I used fresh berried instead of dried, have used several different types of vinegar, and throw in fresh herbs. This makes a big batch! It's easy to halve the recipe.
