1 cup quinoa

2 cups water

Salt, to taste

1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries 

4 oz. feta cheese, crumbled (1 cup)

1/3 cup chopped toasted walnuts

1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley

1/4 cup diced red bell pepper

1/4 to 1/3 cup Sawmill Hollow Family Farms Aronia Berry Cayenne Vinaigrette


  1. Toast the quinoa on medium-high heat in a heavy saute pan, stirring constantly, until it begins to brown, about 5 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, bring 2 cups water to boiling, then carefully pour water into the quinoa. Cover, reduce heat to low, and cook 15 minutes. Transfer quinoa to a large bowl to cool.

  3. Add remaining ingredients into the bowl with the quinoa and toss, then gently stir in Sawmill Hollow aronia berry cayenne vinaigrette to taste and  serve.
