1
teaspoon grated lemon peel
2
tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1
tablespoon olive oil
1/4
teaspoon salt
6
cups spring salad greens
2
clementines or 1 medium orange, peeled and sectioned
1
cup chopped sweet red bell pepper (1 medium)

Directions

  • 1 Cook quinoa as directed on package. Cool; set aside.
