Patriotic Picnic Quinoa Salad

  • 1 Comment

The sunshine beaming in our studio is calling us outdoors for a picnic lunch break. Taking a pause in our workday to enjoy a nourishing lunch with the team is something we all look forward to! The food fuels our bodies as the laughter fuels our spirits.

This recipe is flag-inspired for your Fourth of July celebrations with friends and family. Bursting with bright goji berries, red quinoa, creamy goat cheese, pine nuts and blueberries - every flavor shines through in this tasty combo. It is tossed in a lemon basil vinaigrette and best when served with fresh-squeezed lemonade. 

Red, White & Blue Quinoa Salad


Ingredients :

1 c. Dry red quinoa

1 c. Blueberries

1/3 c. Pine nuts

1/3 c. Dried goji berries

1/3 c. Crumbled goat cheese

1 tbsp. Extra virgin olive oil

Juice from one lemon

1-2 tbsp. Chopped fresh basil

Salt + Pepper, to taste


Directions : 

Cook quinoa as directed on package. Allow to cool. Whisk olive oil with lemon juice, fresh basil, salt and pepper to make a vinaigrette dressing. Mix together chilled quinoa with the remaining ingredients. Lightly toss in vinaigrette and pack for your Fourth of July celebration!

Our team is having fun styling the new collection of tees for the Fourth. With red bandanas, denim shirts and favorite graphic pins, we are giving our #OOTD a touch of patriotic flair. 

Team member, Lex, who handles all of your orders and shipping, is wearing the lovely Embroidered Freedom Tee. Layered with her distressed denim shirt, Jesus Loves You button, Freedom Ice Blue button, and Shine Gold Enamel pin - we think this look is a keeper for your Independence Day parties. 

Alexa, our organization queen and studio manager, gave the Amazing Grace White Fleck tee a fresh feel with her boho black and white printed pants, a red bandana tied around the neck and rust Birkenstocks to finish the outfit. A simple braided hairstyle is the perfect summer up-do to keep cool and look on trend!
