by / ⠀Recipes Salads / September 12, 2013

Quinoa doesn’t have to just be a base for salad! Here, fresh strawberries and dried cherries and berries take center stage while quinoa and flax amp up the protein and fiber.


Serves: 2

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 20 minutes


  • 1/3 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup NatureBox Cherry Berry Bonanza
  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 cups strawberries, quartered
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 sprig of basil or mint for garnish (optional)


1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, boil 2 cups of water. Once the water is boiling, add the quinoa and cook for 20 minutes, until cooked through.
