I first thought of this salad last summer, but never other recipes kept taking its place in my editorial calendar. So I’m super excited to finally be sharing it, especially since I know you are just going to love it.

This recipe comes together in less than 10 minutes, uses just 7 ingredients and requires little to no prep. It’s also one of those recipes that gets better as it sits in the fridge because the berries and quinoa get extra time to marinate in the dressing, which means… it’s awesome for meal prep!

As I was searching around for inspiration, I noticed that pretty much all the recipes out there use honey as the sweetener. While I do love honey, I wanted to a) keep this vegan and b) have just another excuse to use my favorite sweetener of all time.

MAPLE SYRUP.

I mean honestly, does it get better than maple syrup? It has such an amazing flavor; dark, robust, and caramel-y, and it goes well with everything. It gives this salad just the right amount of sweetness without it being too overpowering.

For even more flavor, I also added just a touch of ground ginger to the dressing which is an amazing herb for digestion and detoxification, but it also helps elevate the entire salad. Just a tiny hint of spice, but subtle enough that even ginger-phobs (yes, just made that up) would never notice!

What you’ll love about this salad is that you can also change up the fruit based on what is in season. Since it’s almost summer, I’m making use of as many berries as I can, so it’s a triple berry quinoa salad, but when berries are no longer in season, I also think these combos would be delicious:

  • Apple, Pear & Grapes
  • Kiwis, Banana & Mango
  • Pineapple, Apple & Banana

Or you can also just change up the berries based on what’s available to you!
