Summer quinoa salad w/ asparagus, cherry tomatoes & buffalo mozzrella

I'm absolutely over the moon that summer is upon us. Even though the weather is still pretty fickle here in Auckland, we are starting to see an abundance of tomatoes, zucchini and strawberries at the fruit and vegetable store. I'm so very ready to dive head first into bright summer flavours.

This salad is the epitome of good weather living. Nutritious quinoa is the base. I've cooked it in stock so it's got loads of flavour. The dressing is a simple olive oil, lemon and garlic blend. I've piled the salad high with lightly blanched asparagus, sweetcorn, cherry tomatoes, lots of homegrown basil and finished with hand torn chunks of decadent buffalo mozzarella. My favourite variety is Clevedon Buffalo Mozzarella - it can't be beat!

This salad will definetly be on my Xmas table. I hope you love it. Kelly xox
