I prepared a cup of quinoa yesterday to prepare some bakes,but finally the day went really fast and the cooked quinoa were sitting in the fridge since afternoon..For our dinner, i prepared a sandwich with Scottish Baps with eggs and veggies, while everyone at home asked something as salad for dessert i thought of making a fruits salad with strawberries, apples and pears..I prepared everything for making fruits salad but while serving, i have added those leftover cooked quinoa along with the fruits which is prepared with cinnamon powder, maple syrup and orange juice, next time am gonna add dry fruits or toasted nuts to give more zing to this simple and healthy salad.....Needless to say that this simple quinoa and fruits salad turned out dessert truly delicious, tasty and also refreshing as i used the chilled quinoa, even my DH enjoyed having this super delicious salad..Voila am posting this salad, as they were really healthy and delicious..Do try friends, u will definitely love this..Sending to Indrani's Spotlight-Summer Foods & Drinks and to Srivalli's Thanda Mela..
