Looking for a recipe that's simple and perfect for summer? Try this recipe for Caprese Quinoa Salad.
We've adapted the classic Italian Caprese salad by combining it with the supergrain quinoa, sneaking in some nutritious proteins, antioxidants, and other health benefits into an already delicious dish.
The process is simple. Just combine cooled quinoa with diced mozzarella, grape tomatoes, and fresh basil then add our Traditional 18-Year Balsamic Vinegar and your favorite olive oil. In this particular recipe, we used our Milanese Gremolata - infused with lemon zest, garlic, parsley, and mint - giving the dish an added subtle hint of citrus and garlic flavors.
