Full of sunny flavors, enjoy this tasty spring salad with a side of Croccantini for an extra crunch!

1 cup uncooked quinoa

2-3 cups frozen peas

1/2 cup feta cheese

6 slices bacon, cooked and criumbled

1/2 cup freshly chopped basil and cilantro

1/2 cup almonds, crushed

1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/4 tsp salt, or to taste

3 tbsp honey, or to taste

  1. Cook the quinoa according to the package directions the night before, and let chill in the fridge.
  2. Bring a pot of water to a boil, then turn the heat off.  Add peas and cover until bright green.  This is to prevent them from getting wrinkly.  Toss quinoa with peas, feta, bacon, herbs, and almonds.
  3. Puree all lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and honey to make dressing.  Toss the dressing with the salad ingredients, and season generously with salt and pepper to taste.
