spring quinoa salad with honey lemon vinaigrette

spring quinoa salad with honey lemon vinaigrette

So here is the debut of the new lens with this spingy quinoa salad and honey lemon vinaigrette! I am kind of paranoid to tell you that this is its debut because I took these photos in such a pre-salad-eating hungry girl flurry. I love two or three of them (and a few of my unpictured practice shots) aaand the other ones are sort of struggling to get by thanks to my Minnesota nasty weather late afternoon light. But regardless of the light, I knew right from the first shot that I was going to like this lens. 


for the salad
  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 2–3 cups frozen peas
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup freshly chopped basil and cilantro
  • 1/2 cup almonds, pulsed in a food processor until crushed

for the dressing
  • 1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (1–2 large juicy lemons)
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (more to taste)
  • a few tablespoons honey (I did 3, but adjust to taste)
