Quinoa Caprese Salad~ I have had a long love affair with the Caprese salad. It’s not a complicated salad, in fact, I think it’s the simplicity that makes it so gosh darn delicious. Perfectly ripe, fresh summer tomatoes combined with tender mozzarella cheese and bright basil is an amazing combination. Pair that flavor combination up with quick-to-make quinoa and you’ve got a jam packed bowl of deliciousness. Tis’ the season for juicy tomatoes and with all of the summer entertaining going on this Quinoa Caprese Salad makes for a wonderful and easy (who couldn’t use a little of that right now?!) starter, side dish, or even a hearty meal between the heat waves.
