Chilled Blueberry and Fresh Corn Quinoa Salad

Serves 2-3

1/2 cup of red quinoa

1 cup of fresh corn

1 cup of shaved brussels sprouts

1 cup of blueberries

1/4 cup of tahini, at room temperature

Olive oil

Apple cider vinegar

Arugula

To make this delicious salad, start by cooking the quinoa. Add the quinoa and 1 cup of water to a small pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat and simmer (with lid on) until quinoa has absorbed the liquid. About 10-12 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.

While quinoa is cooking, sauté the brussels sprouts until tender. This should only take a few minutes.

Once the quinoa and brussels sprouts are done, combine in a large mixing bowl along with the corn, blueberries and tahini. I used tahini at room temperature so that it was thin and easy to stir into and coat the salad with.

Chill the salad for a few hours before eating, and drizzle with olive oil and apple cider vinegar when serving. Enjoy!
