Spinach Strawberry Quinoa Salad

As promised, here are a couple more yummy recipes from our recent backyard picnic. Enjoy! 

Spinach Strawberry Quinoa Salad

2-3 cups sliced strawberries
4-5 cups spinach leaves
6 cups quinoa
1 cup sliced walnuts if desired

For Vinaigrette: 
1 cup canola or olive oil
2-3 tbsp honey
6 tbsp lemon juice

Cook quinoa as directed and cool. Make vinaigrette by mixing three vinaigrette ingredients or simply use a balsamic vinaigrette of your choice. Mix strawberries, spinach, quinoa and walnuts if desired. Toss in vinaigrette and serve. 

Egg Salad Sandwiches on Oat Bread

24 hard boiled eggs, shredded
1 1/2 cup veganaise or light mayonaise
2 tbsp grainy mustard
2 tbsp diced dill
salt & pepper to taste 

Mix ingredients. Chill. Spread approximately 1 cup egg salad on bread and serve. May add capers, relish, curry or wasabi to play with flavors (but this is a delicious, standard egg salad as is!).
