Grain Salad With Blueberries

Grain Salad With Blueberries
Quinoa or farro
Fresh Blueberries
Diced cucumbers
Fresh mint
Minced red onion
Lemon vinaigrette
Slivered almonds
* Note  Always rinse quinoa first before cooking with cold water.  It has a coating which should be removed before cooking which also affects the flavor.  I also found a perfectly cooked quinoa can be made in the microwave.  1 cup of water to 3/4 cup quinoa in a covered container for 9 minutes.  Perfctly cooked!
Directions: Cook quinoa or farro according to directions and cool.       Dice cucumber, chop fresh mint, and mince red onion.  Toss to mix well.  Add fresh blueberries and toss.  Drizzle with a lemon vinaigrette and top with slivered almonds.
