Strawberry Quinoa Caprese Salad

I loooove caprese salad…tomato + basil + mozzarella = pure happiness for me.  Mostly for it’s simplicity, but also for the high ratio of cheese:vegetables.  When else do we get to eat so much cheese and still call it salad?

I don’t know where I found out that strawberry caprese salad is a thing.  Probably Pinterest.  I blame Pinterest for most of my weird ideas.

But guess what…I like this salad more than the original caprese salad!  Sorry tomatoes, but move aside…the strawberries are in town.

Then I added some quinoa because I love any old excuse to use quinoa.  It bulks up the salad and gives it a little more substance.  And it brings that extra healthy factor…to balance out the cheese.  Quinoa cancels out all cheese calories, right?
