Quinoa Salad with Watermelon, Strawberry, and Feta

This salad is so pretty!  And yummy!  And easy!  And healthy!  And did I mention how pretty it is?  Light and fresh, and perfect for Spring or Summer.  This would be great to bring to a potluck or picnic.

All you do is cook and cool quinoa (I really like the tri-color for this), which can be done in advance.  Then top with cut watermelon, strawberries, and feta.  Drizzle with a mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, honey, salt, and pepper.  Then finish with basil and sliced almonds.  That's it!  I used some purple basil from my garden, isn't it pretty?  It tastes just like regular Genovese basil.

You can serve it in a platter, or individual containers - up to you!  I think it would travel pretty well, especially if you pack the dressing separately.  It's also really satisfying - you have crunch from the watermelon, almonds, and even the quinoa (which is also very filling), and a salty-sweet combo that is just awesome.
