1red/yellow pepper, slicedI used a Fiesta Pepper that I found at Trader Joe's
¼cupred onion, chopped
1 ½cupalmond milk
Add quinoa, maple syrup, sea salt and almond milk to bowl and stir well. If using Instant Pot, cook on high pressure for 8 minutes; let pressure release naturally, approximately 15 minutes. If NOT using the Instant Pot, cook according to package directions.
Add spinach, arugula, blueberries, raspberries, pepper, onions and peaches to salad bowl. Top with pistachios, mint and dressing.
Notes: I used a lemon dressing with this salad, but you can use your favorite. My recipe included ¼ cup of olive oil, juice of 1 lemon, 2 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar, 1 teaspoon lemon zest and salt and pepper to taste. Blend in small blender.
