  • 4 tbs balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 2 tbs honey
  • 1 tbs Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  1. In a small saucepan add the quinoa and 2C of water. Bring to boil. Then reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes or until cooked. Fluff with a fork.
  2. Combine the nuts, spinach, pomegranate, onion, quinoa and feta in a bowl.
