Summer is officially wrapping up, and we are enjoying every last fresh strawberry that is growing! This salad is a perfect sweet & savory salad combination with fresh berries, greens, and a tangy lemon vinaigrette (that takes 5 minutes to make).

I was inspired to make this recipe after eating at a fantastic restaurant The Wood on our recent trip to Banff and the Canadian Rockies. They had a wonderful quinoa berry power bowl on the menu (which looked like the best low sodium option) and I had to recreate it at home. This salad is the perfect side dish for your next gathering. It’s elegant, fun, and tastes amazing!
