  • 3 organic strawberries

Instructions

  1. For the Quinoa:
  2. Bring two cups of water to a boil. Add one cup organic quinoa. Cook for 20 minutes, till fluffy and till all the water has been absorbed. Make sure to stir the quinoa with a FORK (this prevents clumps)! Now add 1 tbsp. EVOO, and pinch of salt to season, let it cook before assembling salad.
  3. Asparagus:
  4. Add 1 tsp. of EVOO to a preheated saucepan, and add cleaned, and stem removed asparagus. Sprinkle on some pepper corns, lemon zest and salt. Cook for 5 minutes.
  5. Directions:
  6. Create and assemble a beautiful salad of your choice using all the ingredients for you and a friend. This salad has no dressing needed, and you better believe it!
