Blueberry Mango Quinoa Salad

Ingredients:

Quinoa
1/2 cup quinoa
1 cup water

Salad ingredients (minus the quinoa)
1 mango cut into cubes
1/2 cup blueberries
1 medium cucumber cut into cubes
1/4 cup dried cranberries

Dressing
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp agave nectar
10 Basil leaves chopped finely
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Boil the water in a medium skillet, then add the quinoa. Turn heat down to medium, cover the skillet and let simmer for about 10-12 minutes or until the quinoa is cooked. Remove from heat and let the quinoa cool to room temperature.

While the quinoa is cooking, prepare the other ingredients. Combine the fruits and cucumber in a medium bowl. And whisk together all of the dressing ingredients, except the basil.

When the quinoa has cooled, combine the basil and dressing and mix half into the quinoa. Combine the quinoa with the fruits and cucumber mixture and serve immediately with the remaining dressing.
