Strawberry Quinoa Salad Wraps with Maple Tahini Dressing ~ Spring is here and it’s my favorite time of year to be at the famers markets. The weather is a bit nicer and not too hot yet (although we know that’s right around the corner) and the fresh, new produce of the seasons starts to trickle in. Artichokes, spring onions, spinach, and s-t-r-a-w-be-r-r-i-e-s to name a few. I have had a longtime love affair with strawberries and could quite possibly eat them by the barrel if you let me –– those little red guys just make me happy. To help balance out the gluttony of the last two weeks –– spring break and South by Southwest eating frenzy –– I am stocking up on some healthier fare to get us back into the swing of reality and well … life. Can I get a woot woot for back to school?! One thing high on this stock-up list is to incorporate more greens and salads, of course. This Strawberry Quinoa Salad Wraps with Maple Tahini Dressing helps to cover both of those bases. A hearty and delicious salad speckled with spinach, strawberries, and feta cheese then tossed up with my new favorite dressing and wrapped up into a spinach tortilla can be good for a meal on the go or some (recovery) sit down time with the family.
I could eat all of these in one sitting — yum.
You could stop here but I opted to wrap-up this tasty salad for an on-the-go option.
Make quinoa according to directions and let cool completely. Place quinoa, strawberries, spinach, feta cheese, cilantro, and black pepper into a large bowl and mix together well. Next add 1/2 a cup of the maple tahini dressing and toss together one more time.
Place a tortilla wrap onto a flat surface and add 11/2 cups of the salad mixture and fold up the bottom side and then roll in the left and right to create a pocket. Continue to roll up into a burrito shape. Slice in half and serve with the remaining maple tahini dressing for dipping. Continue the rolling process until all of the wraps are made.
