Quinoa & Watercress Salad

Sometimes in the summer the thought of eating hot food grosses me out.  I like to make a meal of salads, fruit, and cheese.  So... add that to the fact that we have been eating lots of quinoa AND the fact that the watercress in my garden is growing out of control... Quinoa & Watercress Salad came to be! 

Quinoa & Watercress Salad We use organic, fair trade, and or local ingredients when possible.
1 great big handful of cleaned and dried watercress
1 tomato diced
3/4 cup of mozzarella (diced or the little balls)
1/2 cup chopped olives (use your favorite kind)
2 cups of cooked quinoa

2 tbs of white wine vinegar
4 tbs of olive oil
1 tsp honey
1 tsp stone ground mustard
1 tsp basil (a bunch of fresh if you have it!)
Salt and pepper to taste
Cook and cook quinoa.

Whisk together ingredients for the dressing.

Combine all ingredients and chill until it’s time to serve.
