Perfect for breakfast or a midday snack, this fun twist on traditional fruit salad is loaded with healthy fats and antioxidants! Quinoa adds additional protein, while a Maple Cinnamon Dressing adds satisfying flavor!



Quinoa Fruit Salad

  • 1 and 1/2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 2 cups frozen wild blueberries, thawed (or other frozen berry) (Thawed berries will help add juice to the salad))
  • 1 large navel orange, peeled
  • 1/4 cup almonds
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds

Cinnamon Maple Dressing

  • 24 TBS maple syrup, depending on sweetness preference
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  1. Add all quinoa salad ingredients to a large bowl. Be sure to reserve the juices from the thawed fruit, as that will help coat the salad with flavor.
  2. Combine the maple syrup and cinnamon in a small bowl. Pour over the top of salad and stir to combine.
  3. Store in the fridge for up to 5 days.
